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.

Please help to solve this problem!

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!

Nikon Coolscan 9000 not working w Mac Snow Leopard 10.6+


You're not going to be happy with this answer:

Nikon has formally sworn off doing ANY future software updates for their scanners. They stopped at 10.4 (pre-Leopard)

See

Yes, there are a LOT of people VERY unhappy with this answer, but we're all kind of stuck with it.

Nikon Super Cool Scan 9000 ED doesn't start. No green light, no nothing.


There are now quite some cases on the internet mentioning that their ED 9000 (mine is a ED 8000) won't start anymore. These scanners easily seem to break, and Nikon offers no solutions at all, they even won't repair my 'old' 8000.

Nikon Coolscan 9000 not recognized by XP computer anymore....


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

USB cable from scanner to new Dell Optiplex 755


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.

Firewire. USB2


Either or is my understanding- the scanner will accept either. I can see no need for both.
