Will look for XP

Ok, I'll be on a quest to find a computer with firewire and Windows XP. That should be interesting! Thank you so far for all your input! I'll let you know as soon as I find the machine and test the scanner.
Thanks!

Please make note that I also asked you about the firmware update? Hate to see you hunt down an XP machine, only to have to do it again becaues you forgot the update

Anyway if you haven't done it, and you should, it can be found here - Super Coolscan LS4000 1.10 firmware update

04/04/2012 Works!

My XP Tower experienced a sudden death. Picked up a Gateway W7 Tower, found out my Imageprint was not W7 compliant. Was able to get the 50% price as upgrade.
Needed a PCIe Firewire card, put that in, Coolscan 9000ed came up but would not
scan, tried burning incense and exaltation's to Maltar of Titan, to no avail. Considered ritual sacrifice (goat, etc) opted out because of the neighbors.
Searched Coolscan windows 7 and came up with you guys. Tried the fix a couple of times, made a small mistake, no dice. Considered looking for a XP tower but gave it another shot. This time no problem, works perfectly. Thanks All!

Glad you got it working.

BTW there were procedures on the net on how to get ImagePrint 6 working under Windows 7. I used them and they worked like a charm. That was a while ago though some I'm not sure the files needed still exist as I'm sure Colorbyte is probably way beyond 6 now. Haven't looked cause the version I have still works for my Epson 2200.

Anyway happy scanning.

Peace.

Hello Signus 21...well, I found a computer and the scanner still did not work. Not a peep. So we opened it up and found one of the Flat Flex Cables inside completely torn. Now to the task of finding one of those cables... I don't think it will be easy.
But thanks for all the help anyway

Wow. How'd that happen?

Anyway unless you find another scanner with that strip, you'll probably have to get it from Nikon since I don't think you'll find one laying around in any repair shop.

Good luck and let me know what you find.

Peace

Getting Nikon Coolscan to work on W7 x64

I know this thread is old but I hope you are still out there sygnus21 to answer questions.
Thanks to you I have not had to bin my Nikon CoolScan on moving to Win 7 however ............ does your solution provide a Twain driver so that I can call up the scanner from Photoshop and other software? I cannot find the scanner under File, Import in Photoshop.
Here's hoping you have a solution.

It doesn't.

I think the only OS that supported it for the scannere was Windows XP. Even Vista 32 bit with the driver Nikon did release for Vista didn't allow for twain.

At any rate there's no need looking for a twain driver for the scanner because there is none. If you want to use the Nikon scan software you'll have launch it on it's own - launch it's exe.

Bottom line is you can't use twain because there is no twain driver included. Not sure if that belongs to Nikon or Microsoft but there is none

Sorry.

Many thanks for a quick reply- I suspected as much. I have been using the .exe file and saving the scan so I will continue that way.

I suppose it is too much to ask but do you by any chance have any win 7 solutions to using the CanoScan 5000F scanner?

VueScan Scanner Software

Once I got my CoolScan V running properly (thanks to this thread), I added VueScan (VueScan Scanner Software for Windows 7, Mac OS X Lion, Linux, iPhone, iPad, iPod) as one of my scan apps. This can see both my CoolScan as well as my Epson CX scanner. The app is outstanding (IMHO).
