Hi Pete,

Sorry my operating 10.5 Yosemite system does not support the Nikon software. Pretty sure it is not a software problem. VueScan works better than the Nikon software anyways.

If it doesn't work with any other software then it is indeed a hardware fault and it can be returned to Nikon for servicing:
