First thing to search for would be the correct XP SCSI drivers for the card.
Only when the card is detected correctly will the scanner be detected.

What problems? Details.

Install the card in a PCI slot in the computer. (With the computer unplugged
from power! )

The driver for the AVA-2906 is imbedded within the Windows XP Operating
System and Windows XP, should automatically detect the AVA-2906 after it has
been installed in the computer and Windows XP should properly install driver
for the Adaptec SCSI card.

The SCSI Card description in Device Manager for the controller will be
displayed as an AIC-7850, which is the chipset that is used on of the
controller.


Windows XP requires ASPI from Adaptec to be installed for SCSI scanners.

Software downloads.
Click:
Current Versions of Nikon Software

Scroll down to near the bottom of page to:
NIKON SCAN
For control of SCSI Nikon film Scanners

Download the version for windows. (This is the TWAIN driver). You will need
some TWAIN capable Photo Editor such as Irfanview (free) or Photoshop
Elements 2.0.

The TWAIN driver is found on the File menu. Most editors have a Select TWAIN
source, then a Acquire menu item.

I have just got my Coolscan II working under XP.

I am using an Adaptec AHA-2940UW PCI SCSI controller. If the scanner is connected properly it will appear in the Apaptec screen in the boot sequence. I had a problem at first when the cable was not seated properly.

I used the self-extracting ASPI driver in the self extracting aspi_47a2.exe. There is an install.bat file which I ran with a 'XP32' parameter. I used ASPICHK to verify the ASPI layer was working OK.

The Nikon link no longer works, but I found an LS30_2000 driver (scan3_driver.zip) and extracted it. I forced the 'Install new hardware' to use LS2000 from the WINXP folder as it refused to pick up a driver automatically.

I had two self-extracting files left over from my Win98 installation - NSW95nt163_d1.exe and NSW95nt163_d2.exe. These were the files on the original 3.5" floppies. When extracted I ran Setup which installed the Nikon TWAIN driver and the scanner utility.
