Nikon Coolscan 8000 ED Film Scanner

I need to get the Nikon 8000 scanner working with Windows XP x64. It worked great with Windows XP. No support for drivers in x64. Hope someone has a suggestion.

    I found this, tried and it works:

    Unoffical Vista X64 driver of LS-8000ED/9000ED for Nikon Scan 4.03
    Steel Chn , Jan 02, 2009; 11:33 a.m.

    I
    knew someone has been looking for this for a long time, but shame Nikon
    never gonna to do this for our Nikon scanner users, even it may cost
    very little effort to do it.

    Yesterday, I upgrade my PC to Quid core Q8200 with 8G RAM and 1.2TB
    raid0 disks, want to enjoy the huge performance boosting for film
    scanning/processing. But after I installed Vista Ultimate X64 with SP1,
    I was too disappointed to find my 8000ED will never be supported by
    Nikon in X64 build windows.

    After some searching, I found 5000ED can be driven by Vuescan driver in
    Vista 64, but 8000ED can't be supported in the same way. I thought
    about to install a dual boot Windows XP just for film scanning purpose,
    but I felt it should be the last way I want to go.

    After some research on the Nikon Scan driver and VueScan driver,
    finally I find a perfect way to DIY my own driver, actually it is a
    combination of VueScan/NS driver files.

    The new driver has two files, first one is the modified scanners.inf
    from vuescan 8.5, the second one is NKScnUSD.dll from Nikon Scan 4.03 (
    it can be found in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common
    Files\Nikon\Driver\Scan1394" after NS 4.03 was installed).

    To install,

    Before step 1), please make sure uninstalling any previous
    8000ED/9000ED device from the device manager, and check"remove the
    drivers either" when uninstall device, then reboot to start a clean
    installation.

    1) Cut the following text and paste into a new text file, and save as scanners.inf

    2) Install Nikon Scan 4.03 first, then copy NKScnUSD.dll from
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Nikon\Driver\Scan1394" to the same
    folde as scanners.inf in step 1)

    3) Open Device Manager, select the device "NIKON LS-8000ED SBP2 ...." from the list, right click and select update driver.

    4) Click "Browse computer to locate the drivers", then point to the file folder where you save scanners.inf, then press ok.

    5) When Windows ask for your permisson to install the driver, please choose always install.

    6) Windows should tell you the driver was installed ok finally, at least it works for me.

    When it is installed ok, if you checked the details of the device
    driver, you shoul have 3 files in Vista X64 SP1, it is ksthunk.sys,
    scsiscan.sys, NKSCNUSD.dll.

    This driver can support 5000ED/8000ED, tested in Vistal X64 SP1, 9000ED and other X64 build are not tested.

    Cheers, and good luck,

    Sorry, I will not hold any responsibility for any damages caused by following my way, please take your own risk to have a try.

    Steel.

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
