Nikon Coolscan 5000 scanner

Has anyone tried to run this scanner under Windows 7 64 bit? The Nikon website was unclear as to whether it is compatible. Windows Compatability center lists it as compatible.

I have a Nikon Coolscan IV ED film scanner and the Nikon site informs that the scan is not supported under Windows 7. Any standard ways to use this scanner with Windows 7?


Getting your Nikon Coolscan to work on W7 x64
For those wishing to get their Nikon Coolscan film scanners working under either Vista or Windows 7 64-bit editions here’s a solution
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...


Nikon scanner on 64-bit Win 7
Brand new Dell Inspiron running 64-bit Windows 7 Pro:
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.


Nikon Coolscan III LS-30
Could someone tell me how to get these scanner working under windows 7.


Nikon Coolscan III and 64 bit W7
The Coolscan has a 50 pin SCSI-1 cable. I can't seem to find a SCSI card that will run on a 64-bit system and also take that plug. They all take Ultra 50 pin.
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.


Install a scanner
There are two ways to install a scanner in this version of Windows. The method you choose depends on whether you want to connect the scanner directly to your computer (called a local scanner), or use a scanner that's shared on a network.


Nikon D-200
With the exception of my Nikon D-200 NOT being recognized under Windows 7 all of my hardware and software was compatable.
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.


Lock Icon Nikon d-90
When I copy pictures off my camera (nikon d-90) using the supplied software, my transfered pictures have a lock icon on them in the lower left of the thumbnail. If i copy, cut and past the picture a few times this icon goes away. I was just wondering why this icon is there? When i ran the software in Vista I never had this show up.
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.

How to Open and Use Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard
This will show you how to open and use the Scanner and Camera Installation Wizard in Windows 7 to help you install a digital camera, scanner, or other image device that Windows 7 did not automatically detect.


Working with the Scanner and Camera Installation wizard
The Scanner and Camera Installation wizard is primarily designed to install drivers for older scanners and cameras-and some networked scanners-that aren't automatically recognized by Windows. Before using the wizard, connect your scanner or camera and turn it on. If Windows recognizes the device and installs the appropriate driver, you're all set. There's no need to run the wizard.


SCSI driver for Win7 pro 64 bits
My old Adaptec 2904 SCSI card is not recognized by Windows 7 64bits. Adaptec has drivers for Windows 7 32bits only, and says "there will be no support for 64 bits drivers for this card" (AIC-7850 based).
Do you know "alternative" drivers (or other solution) that would allow to use the Adaptec 2904 in Windows 7 pro 64 bits?
I need SCSI for my Nikon diapo scanner and backup magneto-optical drives.


Digital Camera
I have a Nikon Coolpix S210. Windows 7RC Build 7100, 32 bit did not recognize this camera when connected to my computer via USB. However, I installed the 64 bit version of Windows 7 (same build) and this version recognized the camera immediately. With the 32 bit I installed the Nikon software and drivers but that did not help. With the 64 bit I installed nothing, it worked automatically.


Computer Can't Communicate with Nikon Coolpix 4200
On first connection with the appareille; installation of required drivers started: couldn't upload photos, then installed the Nikon driver, had a conversation (linux-alike); uninstall old driver+install new driver, couldn't upload photos, appareille is noticed in computer management(device manager) BUT not in what used to be windows explorer. Computer can't communicate with device


Windows 7 XP mode Upgrade
I now have a dual boot system with W7 Home Premium 64 Bit on one drive and my old XP 32Bit on another drive.

I am thinking of upgrading to W7 Professional so I can have the XP mode ability in W7.

This is what it says on the Microsoft site:

[h=2]Installing and using Windows XP Mode[/h]To use Windows XP Mode, you need to download and install Windows XP Mode, which is a fully licensed version of Windows XP with Service Pack 3.You also need to download and install Windows Virtual PC, which is the program that runs virtual operating systems on your computer.
When you install a program in Windows XP Mode, the program becomes available for use in both Windows XP Mode and Windows 7.

1--Is the licensed version of Windows XP Mode I download have anything to do with my already licensed version of XP on my other drive ?
In other words, will I have TWO XP licenses.My own and the new one I download?

2--Do I have to purchase the XP Mode Version or is it included with my upgrade purchase price to Windows 7 Professional?

3--My scanner works in Windows 7 but some features, like the film scanner attachment only work under XP.
Will I be able to install the XP scanner software in XP mode without it conflicting with the scanner operation when I use it in Windows 7?

4--How much hard drive space will be used installing XP mode ?

5--Will doing any of this drive me to the brink of insanity ?


Epson 2480 Scanning software not working
I use an Epson 2480 scanner which comes with a nice suite of software including utilities for scanning, photocopying, OCR and photoprinting. Since I upgraded to Win 7 none of this software works any more.

I get an error message saying Windows cannot communicate properly with the scanner.

Scanning works fine using the built-in Windows Fax and Copy Center but I sure miss the other utilities mentioned above. Can anyone suggest a way to get them working again in Win 7?


Genius color vivid 1200x scanner driver?

other websites also have drivers for windows xp / vista only. is there another way to make this scanner work for windows 7? I saw somewhere windows 7 has an XP - mode which can make use of old hardwares? is this a virtual pc type of system?
