I have purchased a new notebook with windows 7. Unfortunately I see there is no Nikon's driver for the coolscan V ED working with windows 7. I tried the vista 64 version but didn't work. do you have any suggestions? thanks willy

Unfortunately Nikon have not gone beyond Vista 32 bit with drivers - despite still selling the Coolscan 8000 new in the UK One solution is finding a friend with a Vista 32 bit computer - there are still plenty in use. Once you have scanned on a compatible computer it is easy to transfer files to your current computer. If like me you scan slides infrequently, this is probably the simple solution.
Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.

Willy, Here is a past Nikonians post that discusses getting the Coolscan V (and related models) to work with Windows 7. The Coolscan V is a great scanner and works just fine under Win 7 after following the workaround in this thread. Hope this helps.
