Question about Nikon Coolscan III Film Scanner
This did work on my old p4 machine but not on the new pc with athlon amd64 x2 processor. XP operating system with sp2. Have unistalled /reinstalled everything several times. Scanner is detected and device manager says it is working properly but no joy stand alone or though photoshop
Nikon has just updated the driver site to include Vista and XP,using the Nikon link to Adaptec

If you check the Nikon website, I believe you will find that they do not supply a driver for XP SP2. I have the same scanner and it worked well with SP1 but will not under SP2 - all the same symptoms you describe. I believe it is something to do with the aspi layer in Windows that chaanged in SP2. %$@^%$##*&^%&^%(*%(. I've an old m/c running 98 that I have it connected to for the odd occasions I need it now.

I know some devices may not work properly or will not work period if your running a 64 Bit processor. I would recommend to contact the manufacture of your scanner & verify this. Possibly they may have 64bit drivers. Hope this was any help to you.
