2) swithc off the PC
3) disconnect scanner from PC
5) remove the dia/film adapter
6) switch on tyhe scanner and wait untill it booted
7)insert the film/dia adapter
8) connect scanner and PC
9) switch on the PC
it should work now......

I have a Coolscan IV with the coolscan 3 Software, and i have a mac book pro. The following message appears: Error "Could not send look up tables to scanner.", Please help me


Try upgrading to v4.02 driver. You may need to download 4.0 first as 4.02 may only upgrade from 4.0. The scanner runs with v4.02 on my Mackbook pro but I can only scan using the slide adapter and the film holder at present. The film adapter will not work but i'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem.

Nikon Coolscan V ED doesn't work on Windows 7, worked fine on XP, installed on Windows 7, but says Twain can't be found.


Nonsense. Nikon's own site says their scanners don't support Windows7 and suggests using third party software.

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

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!

Coolscan 4000


Well, I finally discovered the solution to my problem of not being able to scan...the scanner had several broken parts inside including pieces of plastic wheels and such as well as a spring jammed in the upper slide rail. So, it was not able to re-set or move into the proper position to begin a scan. I called the Nikon repair facility in Las Angles and they wanted $200 to check it out plus parts to fix it. So, instead, I purchased a Coolscan V and it works great! I still have the broken Coolscan IV and may try and have it fixed someday.
