Question about Nikon CoolScan 9000 ED Film Scanner

1 Answer

When I connect the Nikon Coolscan 9000 that I just got from ebay, it goes through the POST test but does not show up in device manager. I have tried four different firewire cables & four dfferent pc's. I tired Nikon Scan 4.02 on two Win XP, Nikon Scan 4.03 on a Vista 32 bit, & Vuescan on a Windows 7 64 bit. I can plug an external firewire hard drive onto the same cable & it sees the drive. The same goes for connecting to a miniDV camera. The guy I bought the scanner told me that it should work.

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 !

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!

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)

You need to install the drivers before the pc will recognize that there is a scanner connected to it. I would also suggest using the software that came with the scanner instead of just a program that you already have in your computer.

Here is a link to the users manual with the specs and software required to run the scanner correctly below. You can usually get a copy of just any software from CNET's website (www.cnet.com). Try locating the name of the software that the manual says came with your scanner and then go to CNET's website and find a trial version or free version and download then install it on your computer before connecting the scanner. You need to make sure that you do not connect the scanner before installing the drivers and/or software, so if you have it connected now remove the cable.

Windows 7 does not run scanners the way that Windows Xp & Vista do. Your scanner may be set up correctly now before chasing down the driver and/or software. You might want to check using the method listed below before making any changes as noted above.

With XP, the scanners software would be installed on the pc before using and you would see a picture of the scanner with the name on your desktop. To scan you just double click the ICON and follow the prompts.

With Windows 7, to use your scanner you need to click on the round globe on the bottom left of your screen (the one with the flag in it) and then go to "devices and printers" and click on that too.

Find the name of your scanner and right click with your mouse on top of it to get a drop down list of choices. In that drop down list find "scan" and click on it and you will get a drop down list of choices with scanning preferences. Choose your preferences and click scan or "ok" at the bottom. Thats how you scan something in Windows 7. Maybe you were opening the software and trying to scan something that way? After the scanner scans your image, it will number it and take you to where it stores the default scans. If you double click on the document or picture in this area, it will open it in your default software. If you have your computer set to use Vue Soft, then double clicking on the picture or document after scanning it will open it in that software.

Hope this helps?

Hello sir!

Better check first if your system was able to detect your scanner.
See if the Film Scanner is detected on the FireWire Device Tree,
go to: Apple > About This Mac > click the More Info button > then select FireWire in the Hardware section.
If so, then open the Image Capture Application and see if you can select the Nikon Film Scanner?

If you can not find your scanner...Please disconnect all Firewire devices.. and leave only the film scanner connected on your system before installing the driver software.

I need the amount of amps used for multiple pieces of equipment


I'll hazard a guess that you are trying to run these things off of a single household electrical circuit and want to avoid an overload. In that case, the best way is to determine how many Watts each device uses. That information can either be found on the back/bottom of the unit, or on the AC adaptor that came with it. In the latter case, use the "input power" value.

Once you know the wattage, divide by the input voltage - 120 Volts in the US, 100 Volts in Japan, or 240 Volts in Europe, Australia, and much of Asia.

For example...the info on the bottom of my boombox indicates 120V at 16W...

Watts / Volts = Amps
18W / 120V = 0.15A

In another example, my laptop power supply has the following info...

120V-240V @ 160W input
15.4V @ 145W output

I use 120 Volts here so the math goes...

160W / 120V = 1.333A

Note that the output values are not used.


If I want to know how much current the devices use together, I merely add them...

Boombox Amps + Laptop Amps = Total Amps

0.15A + 1.333A = 1.483A

I hope this helps !

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
