Nikon Coolscan 5000 scanner

Has anyone tried to run this scanner under Windows 7 64 bit? The Nikon website was unclear as to whether it is compatible. Windows Compatability center lists it as compatible.

Not to blow my own horn, but you could read my sticky article in this very forum - Getting your Nikon Coolscan to work on W7 x64 It explains how to get your Nikon scanner working under Vista/Windows 7 x64.

Good luck

I have a Coolscan 9000 with W7 64 home version. I am using VueScan with no problems. It is a great scanner software. If all fails, try that.

Did you see my post with the link on using your scanner without having to use Vuescan?

Just in case

Nikon Scan 4.0.3

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and have my Coolscan 5000 working with the Vuescan driver. Vuescan's software works perfectly with the scanner but Nikon Scan 4.0.3 scans the first slide and then crashes. It doesn't seem to be a driver issue but a Nikon Scan problem (I know v4.0.3 is supposed to be only for Vista). Anyone got any ideas?
