Nikon Coolscan 5000 and Mac

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Good morning 

after an intensive search in the Web I really Need some advice:

have bought a used Nikon Coolscan 5000 and want to work with vuescan on a Mac. Although Vuescan detects the scanner, there seems to be no connection.

do I need special drivers? Does anybody has some support?

thx so much! Michael

I'm currently using Mac Pro, OSX 10.8.3, Vuescan, and a Nikon 5000ED. No problems, no special "driver" needed or installed.

Now, I am using the scanner without any hardware add-ons - just the plain slot for slides, with an older Nikon negative strip-carrier (FH-2) that feeds into it. Not the provided "find images" strip device (SA-21?), which I found to be a pain - nor a multi-slide batch feeder. Don't know if that makes a difference.

Thx. Will check my connecting cables. The scanner worked with windows yesterday and I did nothing whether there is need for additional drivers.

thx, Michael
