Time marches on, Apple updates Macintosh's OS software, and what do you know - vendors decide to discontinue support for their scanning utilities in order to sell you new hardware. And there goes perfectly good, and probably better built hardware into the recycling bin.

A couple of web searches later, I found VueScan from Hamrick Software. This software was the answer to both a Nikon film scanner and an older Canon scanner, both orphaned by their respective manufacturers.

To the right is an example of one pretty photo I was able to resurrect from one of many binders full.
