Now that summer is here and I am caught up on my graduate school class I have been working with digitizing some archive items. I started with my old journals, and then while looking through an box in the garage I came across my old Nikon LS-2000 and LS-1000 film scanners. Not having a SCSI connector and proper drivers for my Windows XP computer they have been sitting in there for a couple of years or more. I also found a strange item - a USB to SCSI cable. With some searching I found a driver that allows the cable to work with Windows XP.
Next I tried repeatedly to get the Nikon software to work. It still doesn't - it does not like the TWAIN drivers or something. So a bit of searching on the net reminded me of Hamrick Software's program "VueScan" - which I purchased in 2001. I reloaded the program (my license is still valid, and includes the upgrades) and after an install and restart I now have a working film scanner for my computer.
So, I found some film and slides and started scanning. Here are a few of the images:
