Re: filmscanners: Nikon Scan 3.1 / Windows 2000: "Could not open Nikon Scan 3.1 data source"
I don't use the Firewire card that came with mine (PC has it built-in), but
it works perfectly for me under Win2K SP2. I did have to download the
latest version of Nikonscan, as the version that shipped with the scanner
didn't see the scanner. Try downloading the US version, as I know it
works. Also try hotplugging the scanner, as that sometimes 'wakes up' Win2K.
I agree with Ed, though, I think you have something wrong with Win2k. I use
Vuescan without any problem and if Windows is crashing, it's not Vuescan, it
is Windows itself. An app should not be able to crash the OS.
