Flaming or offending other users. I know this is an old thread, but I’m going to go ahead and bump it because I had these same questions over the past few months. Even though it doesn’t work completely, it may install some obscure drives that can be used by Silverfast or Vuescan. I’m not migrating to Windows 10 so no comment there. Once reported, our staff will be notified and the comment will be reviewed.

So, basically, I had to upgrade my Silverfast software to version 8. Price Calculator How much are different SilverFast versions for your scanner? Hi Burnt Umber and Bob, thanks for your valuable replies.

LS 40ED / Coolscan IV ED

I just had mine to him in February. Honestly, I’ve never really used either of those features in NikonScan since my macs were intel based, and I already had a copy of Vuescan. Vuescan is OK, but I find nothing beats the Nikon software for some reason. My computer does not recognize the scanner at all. Maxwell Pegler 3 years ago. I don’t know if even Veuscan or Silverfats will run this machine on 64 bit systems without this driver.


As a last resort I could of course keep my old ef, upgrade it with RAM and use it only for the scanner, but that would be rather inconvenient.

Nikon scanners came with a primitive FW card which wasn’t much useful for anything else. Has anyone encountered this same problem? One firewire toand one firewire to thunderbolt. My understanding is that I lack a Firewire card, which is apparently necessary.

Older SA is not intended by Nikon for this device, thus is not supported. Apple laptops are attractive, but I also cooldcan Windows computers. Pictures taken under the same light could be interpreted very differently by the scanner, without me changing anything.

I was skeptical about whether or not this would work, but it worked like a charm!

What do Nikon users say about SilverFast? My Coolscan and my Hasselblad had been lying around for years collecting dust.

The results from the SilverFast product are exceptional. Slide feeder SF and SF are not supported. Click here to review our site terms of use.

Coolsdan you Edward but I’m trying to connect to a Mac system. I can fully appreciate the amount of care and devotion that goes in to the SilverFast products.


I found Nikon’s software rather inconsistent. It can be done – but it is trickier on Windows 8 and 10 than 7. I have a number of archival images that I love to scan from film to digital.

Since you’ve already submitted a review for this product, this submission will be added as an update to your original review.

Long story short, I recently got back into shooting film and into doing scans. The Nikon LS 40ED film scanner is able to feed in small and medium format slides or filmstrips automatically. I am a photographer that appreciates view cameras, quality lenses and quality products.

He still services the Nikon scanners even after Nikon stopped. I ended up with a firewire to USB cable off Ebay.

The tools for automatic corrections are working properly and contribute to better imaging results. As for Mac, I don’t have a clue.
