Question about Nikon CoolScan V ED Film Scanner

2 Answers

1. thumbnail drawer not working & 2. Working on images while scanner working

Hi
1. when I first started using the Nikon CoolScan V the thumbnail drawer used to be there - now it does not appear & I have tried all the things I know & asked others with more experience with the machine & so far no answers.

2. Another problem is that while the scanning of other items is in progress you cannot alter the picture by rotating the image or even save it

PLEASE REPLY TO: - craig.keesing@museum.wa.gov.au & richandcath@bigpond.com I lost the thumbnail drawer too. Once I lost it on my desktop (Windows Vista), I switched to my laptop (Windows XP). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software but it does not resolve.

The drivers depend om the hardware to actually show up or to work. If the drivers (software) foesnt find the hardware it will not show up. This could possibly mean that there is a problem with the hardware. but lets leave the hardware thing as a last resort

First off the simple thing (it was accidently deleted or move to the unuesd folder)
1.) check the desktop for a folder labeled unused, see if its in there
2.) click start // all programs / the name of the folder that you installed the program too / and see if its there..

If that doesnt clear it up lets check you computer communication with the device I will describe this as per windows XP
1.) click Start / right click my computer and click properties
2.) click hardware then device manager

In the list that appers there should be a folder labeled imaging device click the + to open it up and verify that its there

If it doesnt show up in there or there is no imaging devices folder then your hardware isnt installed or its damaged
Right click anywahere and choose "SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES" if it shows up install the drivers and your in luck, if not then HARDWARE

If YOU HAVE THE IMAGING FOLDER WITH THE SCANNER SHOWING UP IN IT
1.) click start then mycomputer
2.) scroll to the bottom your scanner should be there, double click on it to verify its working

If its working

FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO PLACE THE ICON ON YOUR DESKTOP
1.) click startb then mycomputer , local disc C, Program files
2.) look for a folder containing the name of the device or the company
3.) browe this folder until you find the program you want and right click it then select send to desktop

Will not recognize 5th image on negative strip because 4 and 5 overlap (slight double exposure). How do I scan 5th image?


I inserted my negative holder in backwards on my Nikon 5000 35 mm scanner. Then I could get the last (5th) slide scanned. But I can not get the scanner to work on my new IMac because of no working driver. Silver Fast has no drivers for the Nikon 5000

Without changing any of my settings, my Coolscan 5000 has suddenly become very slow (10 minutes + per image, up from around 1 or 2 minutes). Does anyone have any idea why this might have happened and what...


You apparently updated your Mac and the update does not work with your Scan-software.Uninstall the software and remove everything that has to do with the scanner --- and reinstall the scan software.

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...

You could use virtual box ( unless you want to purchase vmware fusion or parallels ) to run windows or you could use boot camp on one of or both of the macs to run the software

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!

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 !
