Since I installed NikonScan 3.1 I haven't had any problems with its TWAIN
module. When used stand-alone it may have memory problems. The integrated
curves and histograms dialog is the best I've ever seen in any graphics
application. The version at Nikon's European site is more complete than the
one at their US site. It includes a utility named regsweeper.exe which
should be used before installing ver. 3.1.
I didn't use Nikon's throwaway IEEE1394 board because I already had an
Adaptec 1394 card installed for DV capture. The Adaptec card is much more
robust and I'm guessing that it won't cause any conflicts. I suspect that
some reported conflicts are due to the Nikon card. The Adaptec doesn't need
any drivers or installation routine because Windows 2000 recognizes it
automatically, probably the same for Win9x also.
