    Using Nikon Coolscan with Windows 10


    Thanks to a very informative post in Windows SevenForum (http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/4...rk-w7-x64.html) I have been using my Coolscan with win7 for the past 5 years without problems.

    I am now about to switch OS to Win-10. Does anyone have any experience what happens with this switch? Will the old driver (as modified) still function?

    Nikon Coolscan


    Did you ever find a solution to using a Nikon scanner with Win 10? I need to do the same thing. Been running under Win 7 with no problems but need to switch to Win 10.

    No answer yet because I am unable to install Win-10 on my computer. The motherboard (bios?) lacks the required drivers. The manufacturer reports that they are working on the problem.

    Please let me know if you come up with a solution to the Nikon scanner / Win 10 problem.

    I have managed to get my Nikon Coolscan LS-40 working on Windows 10 using the Windows 7 driver solution . Did you ever reach a positive solution? If not I'll post the procedure.

    I have not been able to get my Nikon 9000 scanner to work on Win 10 yet. Do you think the procedure you used for your LS-40 would work for the 9000? If so, please post the procedure and I'll give it a try and let you know. Thanks!

    This procedure assumes that your scanner was working with the Windows 7 driver created with the help of Windows Sevenforum (Getting your Nikon Coolscan to work on W7 x64 - Windows 7 Help Forums) and you still have access to the Win 7 driver previously used.

    1. Click the start button (lower left corner), then select Settings.
    2. Select Update & Security.
    3. Choose Recovery from the menu.
    4. Select Advanced Startup - Restart Now
    5. Select Troubleshoot.
    6. Select Advanced Options.
    7. Select Startup Settings.
    8. Select Restart.
    9. Select Option 7 (Disable driver signature enforcement).
    10. Connect Scanner
    11. Click start button, then select Settings.
    12. Select Devices.
    13. Scroll down & select Related Settings.
    14. Select Devices & Printers.
    15. Locate your scanner, right click & select Properties.
    16. Select the Hardware tab & select Properties.
    17. Select Change Settings.
    18. Select the Driver tab & select Update Driver.
    19. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
    20. Browse to the folder where you stored the Windows 7 driver.
    21. Click Next and the PC should locate the driver and install it.

    The scanner should now work. If your 9000 scanner worked with the Windows 7 Driver, I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work with Windows 10 after following the above procedure. Good luck.

    Windows 10 updated the IEEE driver


    I have been using the scanner on Win7 using the scanner INF and it also worked when I upgraded to Win 10.
    Recently the scanner stopped working
    On the device manager I see:

    When I try to use the INF file I get:
    Click image for larger version.

    and the properties inform that the device is not connected

    It seems that I need a new INF file.
    can someone update it.
    TIA

    Official Nikon support for that scanner ended with Windows Vista.

    This isn't free, but consider:

    Nikon CoolScan 4000 ED Driver and Software | VueScan

    You can download a free trial to see whether it works for you. I'm not sure, but the Vuescan drivers may support other software as well.

    Thanks, it works.
    The first law of problem solving is that when you know a solution exists, the problem is 90% solved.
    I installed VueScan a while ago, and it did not work.
    Following your suggestion I persisted, and voila it works beautifully.
