Mine just quit talking to the computer. It makes the normal startup noises and loads the transparency tray, but Vue-scan on the Mac and Nikon scan on Windows XP both report "No scanner found." I've tried all possible combinations of turn on/reload/reboot I can think of to no avail. I suppose it is possible that the cable suddenly went bad without provocation, but I suspect that the Firewire interface in the scanner has quit.
Anybody know of any place that might repair it?
Anybody know of a current scanner that will handle medium format transparencies?
I have an Epson 1640 that will do transparencies, but I will certainly miss the quality of the big Nikon.
