scanning 6x7 negs with coolscan 8000

Postby photogreen » Sat Nov 15, 2003 7:03 am

I have scanning 6x6 and 6x7 negs no problem for the last month and just recently been having problems with the negs perfectly lining up. Yes I try using the adjustment button, but that always moves it too far. Does it matter where you place the negs on the adapter???? :-? :-? Also does it matter if you place just 1 image on the adapter????I am up to date on the version of Ai. Does my scanner need realignment after just 1 month???? :evil:

It might very well be a driver problem, if this worked fine for a month. Sometimes the drivers, or their preferences can get corrupted, and this can result in erratic bahaviour. The first thing you should try is to remove Silverfast and re-install the latest version.

to remove:

Delete the Silverfast- folder in


and the Silverfast application- folder inside your applications- folder

and the Nikon- folder in

library/application support

Then, please re-install the latest Silverfast, and reboot.

Return to “Nikon”
