Question about Nikon COOLSCAN 5000 ED Film Scanner

1 Answer

My PC, running XP Pro , has stopped recognising my Nikon 8000 scanner. I have been using the scanner in the past and it still seems to function OK. (i.e. it starts up and will accept and eject slide holders). I have now re-installed the software but still no joy. Have tries two firewire cables to no effect and I don't have access to another computer to check if it works there. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

There seem to be a lot of us in the same boat. I have the same issue with my coolscan 5000.
I am not sure if there is firmware involved or not, but I still cannot get my to be recognized by the comp. Will post if I find solution.

I have a Nikon Coolscann 8000 and a Mac computer. I only have the original software with the 8000 and it will not upload with the newer Mac operating systems. How do I get updated software for the 8000.


I have successfully downloaded NikonScan 4.2 on my MacPro running Snow Leopard (10.6.6) and my Nikon LS8000ED seems to work fine. I ran a test scan and it worked with no problem.

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.
