Nikon Coolscan 5000 scanner
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Note - This fix applies to the 4000, 5000, 8000, and 9000 series scanners. I can't guarantee older scanners will work but it's worth a try. If not, check this post for help or tips for older scanners. And credit Steel Chn for the inf file. I'm just providing an already built modified file that includes the Nikon 5000. Now...
My Nikon Coolscan IV ED (LS-40) won't work. There are no official Nikon drivers for this scanner, but plenty of people have made it work, using third party scanner applications (like Vuescan or Silverscan) and/or customized .inf files. Should be a walk in the park.
In my case, Windows correctly detects and identifies the scanner. I've installed the driver and everything looks fine, except: “The device cannot start. (Code 10)”. Same problem under Windows Virtual PC, XP mode.
I’ve tried a different USB cable, different USB ports – nothing works. The scanner works fine on my old XP system. Considering that many people have done this before (i.e. running Coolscan scanners under 64-bit Vista and Windows 7), this should be easy. And it appears to be - except that it isn't working. Very frustrating.
Currently installed is the Adaptec AHA-2940 PCI, which I was using on the x86 XP system installed prior to the upgrade to Windows 7 64. That card will not install because there are no 64 bit drivers available.
Unfortunately, I had anticipated upgrading to Windows 7 for my laptop which is the basis of my photography activities. Unless Nikon or Microsoft can address this issue I will stick to my perfectly working Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bit for the laptop.
I have checked ALL setting in Nikon Transfer and there is no setting that i can see that could cause this, leading me to supect something that Windows 7 is doing.
I want to compile the names of the 5000 access files in one text file
