Problems with Nikon scanner and Mac
I have a Nikon Coolscan V ED (also named Coolscan 50 ED in some countries) which used to work fine with my iMac. (24" w. mountain lion and Vuescan software)
After connecting it to a new Imac (27" with same software) I can´t communicate with it anymore. It is not seen i Vuescan, and not seen in as a USB device either. Same problem when I connect to the old Imac as well, and even to an Mac mini with OS x 10.6.
I have tried with 2 different USB-cables as well, and one of them is tested to work fine when connected to a USB printer.
To me it sound like a hardware problem with the scanner, but maybe there are other options?
Is there a way to check the scanner for hardware failure without sending it for repair?
