Dear Erik

we're accessing the Nikon Super Coolscan LS-8000 through a Nikonscan piece of software, the so-called NikonMAID drivers.

However, it seems Nikon won't update to Leopard, cf. the statement linked in our product extra notes for this scanner:

As we've found this not appropriate for our customers, we're right now development an implementation of our own so that the situation will improve soon.
Please check on the version history from time to time to learn, when this will become available:

Best regards
