Question about Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED Film Scanner
I have had this problem. It has given me hours of frustatation. It would start the scanning process then it would stop or hang at any point along the process.
I did the usb thing, no good.
What I found was the warmer the day got the sooner it got buggy. I dont blame the scanner, I am pretty sure the problem lies in the PC. The PC heat doesnt seem to affect any other programs, or not that I can tell. It is only when scanning. It also seems that that the more things I add like roc and gem the sooner it gets buggy. Sometimes if I turn these off and it will run a bit more but it will eventually not scan at all. It will all be good after I turn it all off and let it cool down. I have let the scanner cool down before trying again while leaving the computer on but it still stops while scanning.
I scan my slides singularly and from photshop. This does not affect the bugginess.
I dont use ice on my kodachromes as it seems to get buggy and chops out power lines.
I use a soft puffy brush from a camera shop to clean the slide.
I have some issues with flairing but only on a few slides. I turn down the analog gain helps only a tiny bit. I try to fix it in photoshop.
