I am sure I read somewhere that Kodachrome in particular may not play nice with some of the older Nikon scanners. I can't quote particulars with certainty but it might be worth doing a bit of research. Something about some type of layering in the emulsion being a problem.

The issue is with older versions of the "Digital ICE" automatic scratch/dust removal system. Kodachrome slides have physical layers for the different colors, and Digital ICE would interpret edges in the image as scratches and hairs.

It's claimed that modern versions of Digital ICE don't have that problem.
