"nikon coolscan 50 ED vs Windows 7 64"



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.

I faced a similar issue with my Canon FS4000US scanner and chose to purchase VueScan from Hamrick Software.

On a side note, I'd be willing to pay full UK retail for a Nikon 8000ED scanner. I've been looking for new old stock in the U.S. to no avail.

I may well end up going that route, but the last used unit I looked at was not in good shape. 9000 ED's are selling for about 50% over the original U.S. retail price.

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.
