Hi,

There have recently been few announcements regarding the Windows 7 compatibility program that Nilkon is working on, so nothing directly would be available for now.

You still have couple of option that will help your scanner work with Windows7:
Microsoft SilverFast is Windows 7 compatible: The detail can be viewed below
http://www.silverfast.com/show/windows7/en.html
Also I appear to have found a way to get the Nikon Coolscan V ED to work in Windows 7 beta 64 bit, but it requires that you have a copy of Vuescan and that neither Nikon Scan nor the Nikon drivers are installed.

Step one - Attach the scanner to the PC and ensure that it is switched on.
Step two - Install the latest copy of Vuescan ( 8.5 ). http://download.cnet.com/VueScan/3000-2118_4-11093698.html

Step Three - Open "Device Manager" and Right click on "Nikon LS 50".
Step Four - Choose "Update Driver Software" and, in the box that appears, choose "Browse my computer for driver software".
Step Five - Navigate to the "Vuescan" folder, make sure that "Include subfolders" is ticked and click next.
Step Six - If your as lucky as I was, everything will install without a hitch and your good to go.

You may also need, on the "Input" tab, to point the software at the LS-50 ( I didn't find it to be necessary, but you never know - if there's one thing I've discovered, to my cost, it's that scanners can be terribly temperamental )

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.

Windows 7 64 bit drivers for nikon coolscan ls5000ed


I use the same scanner. I heard Nikon was working on compatibilty with windows 7. They done it for vista but 32bit only. I would recommmend using Silverfast software. They have the comp. drivers for 32 and 64 bit windows 7. But it comes with a someone hefty price. I just looked on there site and its $398.00. It is a good software but pricey.

Trying to install Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED, for some reason the installation disc doesn't have the LS-5000 ED driver software...? I am running Win Vista. Any ideas?


I do not believe Nikon made drivers specifically for Vista, but you can use the solution here to make your own driver "inf" file and install some that will work anyway. Please read this and carefully follow the directions. If you are using 32 bit, use the 32 bit drivers. If 64 bit, then 64 bit drivers, when creating the new inf.
