Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED can not be recognized by computer
Having new Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED with Firewire interface. All cables and IEEE 1394 card are supplied with the scanner. OS is Windows XP Pro En SP3, MB is Asus Maximum Formula, 3Gb RAM, all fresh MB drivers are installed.
All actions are according to the manual: 1) install the card, 2) install the software + 2 updates, 3) connect and turn on the scanner, 4) start Nikon Scan.
Having the message: ''Nikon Scan can not find any active devices''. Coolscan 9000 LED is blinking for an infinite time, and no self-testing sounds are heard.
In Device manager, I can not find Coolscan 9000. In the same time, IEEE 1394 card is present and displayed without error signs.
When switched on being disconnected, self-testing is OK and LED stops blinking for 1-2 min and lights continuously. When I connect the scanner after that, I again can not see it in Device manager and get the same error from Nikon Scan.
I've tried to 1) reinstall Nikon Scan, 2) reinstall Windows to SP1, SP2 and SP3, and do the setup procedure above -- the error is reproducing.
Re: Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED can not be recognized by...
I am having the exact same problem...cannot get the Coolscan 9000 to show up in Device Manager. One thing I did try (to no avail) was to run the regsweeper.exe file that comes with the Nikon scan disk. It clears your registry when you reinstall. It still did not work though so I have a lovely "shoebox" sitting next to my computer that is worthless!

if your computer has a Firewire (IEEE 1394) port, you can use a Firewire cable to connect one of the AudioFire4's Firewire ports to the computer's Firewire port, then hook up your XP80 to the MIDI ports on the AudioFire4. Connect MIDI Out to MIDI In.
It is Firewire port/ Interface. The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and real-time data transfer, frequently used by personal computers, as well as in digital audio, digital video applications etc. The interface is also known by the brand names of FireWire (Apple), i.LINK (Sony), and Lynx (Texas Instruments). This is not as widely used.It works just like USB but it is meant for connecting Firewire capable devices. If you have any firewire capable device (like video camera)and firewire cable, you can connect the device to your PC and use it for high speed data transfer.
I read and would like to thank, the person who mentioned this as a solution. It was stated that if you have more than one firewire on your computer, when you open the Nikon, both signals, or whatever happens in computerland, don't connect. Upon removing the drive in the other firewire, Nikon clicks in everytime. Answer: have only ONE active firewire at a time. You may need to unplug the cable to the scanner and reconnect. But that's it. I've not had any problems since
If you look carefully at the cable, you will notice it is a firewire cable (IEEE1394), not USB. You will need a firewire interface on your computer to use the Nikon scanner. It will not work with a USB port.
If you are trying to move video that is stored on TAPE, you need to get a Firewire cable. Using the USB cable, you can only transfer photos and video that is stored on the Memory Stick Pro memory card (user-supplied). The Firewire cable has a standard IEEE-1394 male connector on the computer end and a mini IEEE-1394 male connector on the camera end. If you don't have a Firewire interface on your computer, you will need to get one.
Your computer must be equipped with an IEEE 1394 (Firewire) interface and video capture software. Provided you have both of these, follow the directions below.
To connect your digital camcorder to your computer using IEEE1394, follow these steps:
1. Connect the IEEE 1394 interface on your camcorder to the IEEE 1394 interface on your computer.
2. Turn on your computer.
3. Turn on your camcorder.
4. Start the video capture software on the computer.
Image capture should begin provided the computer hardware and software are configured correctly. If image capture does not begin, you must consult the computer or capture card manufacturer for assistance.
Note: If you don't have an IEEE 1394 interface on your computer, you can buy an IEEE 1394 pci card at your local computer store that will work with most current computers.
