Warning! Nikon scanners and latest Mac OS
Jul 25, 2009

Anyone planning on buying a Nikon film scanner be warned- the software (Nikon scan 4.02) is not compatible with the latest Mac OS 10.5.x. On the Nikon website they say they are not planning to update their software to address this issue.

I now have a Nikon 5000ED scanner which has miraculously turned into a paperweight. Sadly it was a pretty good paperweight even when it could scan.

Does anyone know about third party software (eg Silverfast) and compatibility with the latest Mac OS? Is there a way around this?
