Glass neg carrier - Nikon Coolscan 9000

I just purchased the glass medium format neg carrier and it won't load into the scanner. All my other film carriers load just fine. I even took it back and exchanged it for a new one and it still won't load. Any ideas???

Thanks, but yes, I was inserting it correctly. Turns out I had actually purchased 2 defective carriers in a row! I finally got a good one and all is well.

Not to sound rude, but are you inserting it with the arrows pointing into the scanner?  That is the first step. Afterwards makesure you have the scanner on and the green light is not blinking.

Scanner doesn't recognise their is a slide loaded in the slide holder


The first thing I'd try is to run the scanner with the Nikon software. When you power on the scanner it goes through a variety of checks, and finally you should have a silent scanner with a solid green light at the front. Start the Nikon software and wait until it finds the scanner, if it doesn't you have a hardware problem with the scanner.

If it goes well to this point insert a card or plastic mounted slide and hit Preview. The scanner should then create and image you see on screen. Next step would be to make a scan. If the slide you're trying to scan isn't card or plastic mounted you'll need the Nikon made carrier.

Hope this helps.

According to the Nikon site the software for the Coolscan is not compatible for Mac OS Lion, you need to purchase silverfast to get it to work see http://www.scandig.com/filmscanner/nikon/nikon-coolscan-v-ed.html silverfast can be bought from http://www.silverfast.com/ you can download a demo from here to see if it works.

You're not going to be happy with this answer:

Nikon has formally sworn off doing ANY future software updates for their scanners. They stopped at 10.4 (pre-Leopard)

Unable to scan b/w neg's correctly using Digital ICE


Unfortunately, you cannot use Digital ICE on B&W films due to silver particles contained within the film. The Digital ICE future only works with C-41 (negatives) and E-6 (slides) processed films, but not B&W films.

Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED can not be recognized by computer


I am having the exact same problem...cannot get the Coolscan 9000 to show up in Device Manager. One thing I did try (to no avail) was to run the regsweeper.exe file that comes with the Nikon scan disk. It clears your registry when you reinstall. It still did not work though so I have a lovely "shoebox" sitting next to my computer that is worthless!

Nikon Super Cool Scan 9000 ED doesn't start. No green light, no nothing.


There are now quite some cases on the internet mentioning that their ED 9000 (mine is a ED 8000) won't start anymore. These scanners easily seem to break, and Nikon offers no solutions at all, they even won't repair my 'old' 8000.

Nikon Coolscan 9000 not recognized by XP computer anymore....


I read and would like to thank, the person who mentioned this as a solution. It was stated that if you have more than one firewire on your computer, when you open the Nikon, both signals, or whatever happens in computerland, don't connect. Upon removing the drive in the other firewire, Nikon clicks in everytime. Answer: have only ONE active firewire at a time. You may need to unplug the cable to the scanner and reconnect. But that's it. I've not had any problems since

Close the scan program --turn off and unplug the scanner---plug the LS9000 back in and turn it on----reopen the scan program--this is my method on my LS-8000--It does this quite often !
