Coolscan 8000 Program Buttons not functioning

I have been using a Nikon Super Coolscan for a couple of years. Survived TWAIN not found, etc. Hopefully someone can help me with a new problem, I'm at a loss...... The scanner itself seems to be functioning fine. Turns on and loads film holders. I import my images through Adobe (Windows). I select import, then Coolscan and the Nikon program window is displayed. The problem is that ALL the function buttons on this program are not functioning. I'm not able to select the type of film holder, preview/scan button or any other button or menu selection. I have already uninstalled the program from the computer and re-installed it with the OEM disk to no avail. I have tried this several times, to take away human error (being myself!). The second option I tried was downloading the program from the Nikon's website. That didn't not work either. Please help!

Recently upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Where can I get correct drivers to run with my Nikon Super Coolscan slide scanner LS-4000 ED model. I have Nikon Scan 3.0 twain software. Stu Milligan

Hello there.
This will help you if you have 64-bit Windows 7, because officially, there is not windows 7 64 bit driver.
Just read and do everything.
Otherwise, if you have windows 7 32bit click here:
To check bits, go right click on My Computer, Properties, and you will see it.

Nikon Coolscan V ED doesn't work on Windows 7, worked fine on XP, installed on Windows 7, but says Twain can't be found.

Nonsense. Nikon's own site says their scanners don't support Windows7 and suggests using third party software.

I have an intel macintosh I have nikon coolscan 8000 scanner I have leopard, latest update I have nikon 4.0.2 update for scanner I can not get it to work. I double click on Nikon icon on my dock,...

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

My Nikon Coolscan 8000 Ed will not start

Make sure that the computer you are using meets the criteria for the program with both the operating system and hardware. If so, try un-installing the camera software and then re-installing it. Beyond this, the problem can become a little complicated and require you to call the tech support from Nikon. They should know what it required to make their program function properly.

Firewire. USB2

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