Has this happened before or is it a new issue?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Scanner worked with XP and 7. Still works now as a copier but will not let me scan negatives (black/white/kodacolor/coda chrome). I cannot get into a mode than for transmission, only reflection. I think the problem is with 10. Why would XP and & 7 work but not 10?
