Don't give up on it! It's a shame that Nikon abandoned this great product. But, despite what others have reported, this scanner can still be totally functional without Nikon software. I use this Coolscan 9000 very successfully with the latest version of VueScan and Mac OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion; every feature works perfectly. This scanner is one of the best film scanners ever made. It does take some learned skill to get the best out of it. (Doesn't almost everything?) VueScan is easy to use and learn and mates perfectly with this scanner. The 9000 can dig things out of your slide or transparency that you never knew existed. The resulting prints from these files are gorgeous. If you can't find a new one, eBay usually has a few on auction December 23, 2012
Lack of support for MACOSX First of all, DO NOT buy VueScan software. It is terrible, and the owner/developer does not do customer support. I have had multi nightmares trying to get this software to work. Despite one poster's claim that the 9000 scanner works perfectly with MAC OS 10.6.5, it simply does not. Nikon does not support it. The best solution is to set up a separate scanning station with a computer loaded with OS 10.4. That software works with the 8000 & 9000 scanners. August 4, 2011
Excellent Scanner Excellent resolution and able to pull information from the dense parts of your film. This scanner is a huge leap up from the Epson flatbed that I used to use for film scanning. Excellent scanner that runs really well under Windows. Don't hesitate to run this under Windows - the statement that you need to run this on a Mac is rubbish. September 4, 2010
Great images, but ... When I was running Mac OS 10.4, this seemingly flawless scanner was producing exquisite images for very large, fine art prints. Then, I took the leap to OS 10.5.6 and was stunned that this great scanner was now completely and utterly unusable. After owning and enjoying my Nikon cameras since my first Photomic FTN in 1969, I don't understand why Nikon has opted out of the driver upgrades for such an expensive albeit terrific scanner. I have since loaned it to a friend who still works with OS10.4 and needs to scan his medium format film. Hopefully, someone at Nikon will, again, recognize and appreciate their customer base of loyal professionals. October 18, 2011
Why did Nikon quit on this? Sad to say, Nikon quit making the LS9000 scanner because it was an invisible speck in their profit picture. Good for them, bad for me. This scanner was amazing. It worked well with VueScan on Mac OS, after Nikon announced it wasn't upgrading to Mac OS 10.4 [another straw in the wind]. I'd used the Nikon Software with the LS2000, and liked it well enough. The 4000dpi RGB preview scan of a 6x6cm neg was easily 120+mb. Only rarely would I bother making a "real" scan. It was that good. I found out the hard way that the LS9000 was discontinued after inadvertently damaging it. 9000's were selling for big money, and 8000s were right behind. Good luck! October 12, 2011

My previous scanner was a Minolta Dimage Multi Pro and it's going to make a very expensive paperweight soon because I can't locate a bulb anywhere. I am not alone. I'd hate to see this wonderful Nikon scanner share a similar fate. I do have a warranty, but I"m afraid parts might run out as they have for so much of my photographic equipment. Thank you!

Our hard drive is too small in physical size to fit the IEEE port into it (we have an HP Compaq with Windows XP) and we were wondering if we could use an IEEE/USB converter cable instead with this scanner. Or is there some other way to connect it to our computer? Thanks!

Answer: 
Mac OS 10.5.x and 10.6.x are not supported and not guaranteed to operate properly with Nikon Scan software. We suggest the use of third party software such as Vuescan or Silverfast with either of these operating systems.

Answer: 
Unfortunately since Nikon no longer produces scanners we no longer carry masking material for scanners. Nikon cannot offer support or advice on third party products, but you may be able to find suitable material online or at local camera shops. Masking material is thin and rigid, pitch black, and is non-fibrous.

This scanner has had little use in comparison to my other scanners and was powered up and working the day before and I went to start it the next day and not a hint of life it is completely dead no power at all?? This seems to be a fairly common problem with this scanner when searching the web. Is this a power supply issue? Can I get this fixed or can I purchase a new power supply?

Answer: 
Since Nikon stopped producing scanners several years ago we are no longer updating Nikon Scan software. There is no version of Nikon Scan that is compatible with Windows 7. In order to operate your COOLSCAN LS5000 on Windows 7 you would need to look into third party software such as Vuescan (www.hamrick.com) or Silverfast (www.silverfast.com).

You can find the system requirements for Nikon Scan at this address: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

If you have access to a system that meets the requirements then you can download the most recent versions of Nikon Scan from this address:
