Question about Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED Film Scanner

Nikon Coolscan5000 won't work with 10.5.5 Leopard

I was told by the camera store that the reason my Coolscan is now crashing is due to Apple updates and it won't run on 10.5 (only 10.4).  It did work fine but now won't open on my desktop or MacBook.  Anyone have this problem?

    I am now using Leopard 10.5.6 and cannot access the coolscan software that had operated well until last month.  Will Nikon be addressing the problem of working with the higher levels of Leopard?  Is there a fix out there?  March 14, 2009

    I've been having the same problem. Ever since I tried to install Nikon Scan 4 on my new MAC – which is running 10.5.6.

    This is the only work around that I've found:

    http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers...

    Use the plug-in and import from Photoshop. Place the plug-in into the import/export plug-in folder for Photoshop. Then, import the scan directly from Photoshop. This seems to work for me.

I just made a post to this site... The only work around I have found to work is this: http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9780

Put the plug-in into the import/export plug-in folder for Photoshop. Then, import the slide directly through Photoshop's Import function.

Hopefully this helps...

Hi! My computer (Macbook pro) doesn't seem to recognize my Nikon Coolscan IV software and I get the following message


You've not said what the message is but I suspect that the software is too old to be used on the macbook if it is running OS X 10.7 (Lion) or if you are running snow leopard, it may be a non-intel version of the software. It may be asking you to instal rosetta which would be on your snow leopard instal disk.

If the Nikon website does not have updated software you could try vuescan which according to this page http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/nikon_coolscan_iv_ed.html does work with the film scanner and you can download a demo version which you can trial before you buy. Hope this helps.

No Mac driver


Get the older 3.X version of Nikon Scan online.
It works fine with my 4000ED Firewire on a MBP running OSX 10.6.
For some reason my 5000ED USB runs fine on NS 4.0.2 and 10.6 on an older iMac, but 4.0.2 won't run at all on the MBP. Don't know why. Installed, uninstalled and reinstalled many times. No luck.

According to the Nikon site the software for the Coolscan is not compatible for Mac OS Lion, you need to purchase silverfast to get it to work see http://www.scandig.com/filmscanner/nikon/nikon-coolscan-v-ed.html silverfast can be bought from http://www.silverfast.com/ you can download a demo from here to see if it works.

Without changing any of my settings, my Coolscan 5000 has suddenly become very slow (10 minutes + per image, up from around 1 or 2 minutes). Does anyone have any idea why this might have happened and what...


You apparently updated your Mac and the update does not work with your Scan-software.Uninstall the software and remove everything that has to do with the scanner --- and reinstall the scan software.

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
- http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16811
and
- http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14421

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

I have a Nikon Coolscann 8000 and a Mac computer. I only have the original software with the 8000 and it will not upload with the newer Mac operating systems. How do I get updated software for the 8000.


I have successfully downloaded NikonScan 4.2 on my MacPro running Snow Leopard (10.6.6) and my Nikon LS8000ED seems to work fine. I ran a test scan and it worked with no problem.

Nikon 4.0.2 isn't supported on 10.5

I suggest you look at VueScan which does work under 10.5 and 10.6 with your scanner, and they have a free download to test first

Nikon coolscan 9000 won't start - no power, no green light


Have the same problem with the ED 8000, it is totally dead and stays dead after using different powercords etc. These scanners easily seem to break. And Nikon doesn't want to repair the old ones anymoren ;-(
