Best software for Nikon Coolscan V ED and Leopard?
Mar 18, 2008

I just replaced my old PC with a new iMac running 10.5.2. I have a Nikon Coolscan V ED scanner which I'd like to use. I'd like to avoid using anything on the CD that came with it as it's ancient (and I never liked the Nikon software anyway) and the software on the Nikon web site isn't much newer (circa 2005). I have a couple of questions:

Does software like Silverfast or VueScan require that the CD that came with the scanner be used in anyway? Or is that software all you need?

Can anyone recommend from personal experience scanner software that works well on 10.5.2 with this scanner? I value stability and Leopard compatibility over bells and whistles.

Thanks,
Jan
