[filmscanners] Re: LS 2000 running slow



I don't own a Nikon, but that number is way off.  I've owned four film
scanners and even on my original DX 486 I was getting 5 minute to 7
minute scans.  Today I get 2-3 minute scans on my Celeron 500 with
either SCSI or USB.  In fact, the SS4000+ at 4000 dpi gives me a scan in
a couple of minutes with the USB connection, and I'm sure faster with
Firewire. Processing of the scan depends a lot on processor and memory.

I don't use a Mac, so I'm shooting in the dark here.  On my scanners if
the DMA wasn't set correctly, the film would shuttle back and forth and
could take 30 minutes or more (I know the Nikon doesn't shuttle the
film, so it might not be obvious if the scan head is re-scanning or not).

Hopefully there are some Nikon/Mac users out there who can be more helpful.
