More info about "failed to reset"

This happened to me, and it was a mechanical issue/design flaw, not a driver issue. When you open up the scanner, you should see a black belt inside, under the glass. For me, that black belt got caught on some of the bits protruding from the green circuit board.

To solve this, unplug your scanner. Get a long, very thin stick. It needs to be able to fit inside the small holes on the bottom of the scanner near the circuit board and wiggle around (I used the needle of one of those compasses used for drawing circles). Depending on where the belt is caught, you may be able to use the stick to gently pry it off of the circuit board where it's stuck.

This fixed the problem for me and allowed the scanner cartridge to move freely again. Unfortunately, in my case, the belt is all bent out of shape from the scanner struggling to pull against it, so it's more prone to getting caught again. So it's a temporary fix.

Coolscan 3 and Windows XP

Try a good scanner program called vuescan. Much better than Nikon software. I have been using on XP for a long time and no problems

Nikon scan was unable to find any active devices

The LS2000 is older than XP and has some fairly tight requirements to work. The recommended SCSI adapter is an Adaptec 2906, and you will probably need to backrev the ASPI layer driver files to version 4.7 (available on site). You may need to boot in Safe Mode to remove the later versions of the ASPI files before you can install the 4.7 files. You will also need to update your Nikon Scan software to version 3.1.2, available online by googling "nikon scan 3.1.2".

Dell laptop wont recognize ls2000 scanner

The LS-2000 is a "legacy" device to XP and the Nikon software. It needs to be connected to a true SCSI bus adapter, and it's actually pretty finicky about which ones will work in XP. Sorry, you won't be able to use this with your laptop.

I need to connect a Nikon LS2000 Slide Scanner to a Power Mac G4

I originally had the same problem but with a G5. Since Nikon never updated the software for the LS2000 to work with Apple I ended up buying a FR1SX adapter from RATOC Systems: connects the SCSI pins to a Firewire cable. Then I purchased the VueScan software from The scanner worked for several years with this combination.
