USB cable from scanner to new Dell Optiplex 755

The cable that came with the Nikon Coolscan 4000 that goes into Dell will not fit into into the USB port because of the design.
What are my options to be able to use the scaner ?
Thank you, Norm

Re: USB cable from scanner to new Dell Optiplex 755

If you look carefully at the cable, you will notice it is a firewire cable (IEEE1394), not USB. You will need a firewire interface on your computer to use the Nikon scanner. It will not work with a USB port.

Nikon Super Coolscan Jam Solution


Do you find your older slides, cardboard slides, or irregular slides jam in the Nikon SF-210 Slide Feeder for your Nikon CoolScan 4000?

Try this solution:

Take a AAA battery and place it in rear, left side of the slide feeding tray as pictured below:


The slides will fan out nicely, and your Nikon CoolScan will no longer try to load more than one at a time. Instead it will load them one at a time, 50 per tray, and you can actually walk away from it and let it do its job, just the way you intended to when you bought the SF-210 slide feeder attachment!

I hope that helps.

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.

My Nikon CoolScan 4000 is not working properly. All images come with a green shade

I had the same problem with coolscan LS 50 ed, but the chromatic dominant was blue instead. What you have to do is to perform a p.o.s.t. procedure: 1) swith off the scanner and unplug it from the PC; 2) switch off the PC; 3) remove the film-holder from the scanner; 4) switch on the scanner; 6) plug it back to the PC; 7) switch on the PC; 8) insert the slide/film holder. It should work now...

I believe my coolscan 4000 may have or is failing - can you help me determine if it is a hardware or software (driver) problem?

I contacted Nikon Tech Support and with them determined that the scanner failed POST and needed hardware repair.
