Vuescan is the really very very good for the money replacement but, I am not sure if it utilizes some of the hardware in the upper end Nikon film scanners. For instance: removal of dust and scratches on B&W negatives, it cannot do but Nikon Scan *can*! Also, when I compared scans done in Vuescan with Nikon Scan, I preferred the Nikon Scan approach.
Regardless VueScan software is a piece of junk on the Mac and never worked right from the day I bought the scanner. Nikon basically abandoned software right away. (Probably to focus on digital cameras.)
BTW: Once a scan is done, the free Polaroid Dust and Scratch Removal is also fantastic and also, no longer available and only works on Snow Leopard on back. I wish Vuescan would buy/licence this tech and incorporate it!

It says here that it never worked on Leopard or Snow Leopard either.

@Rolandius: Well, I am currently running Snowleopard with a Nikon Coolscan V and Nikon Scan 4.0.2 software… Works flawlessly without crashes and bugs. Don´t really wanna pay for VueScan or Silverfast when Nikon Scan can provide me with good raw-files for Lightroom postprocessing:-( Anybody know anything here?

It doesn't work and will not work:

"You can't open the application Nikon Scan 4 because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."

So we have to look for an alternative. Siverfast 6.6 does not work either. We have to wait for the new version (8) in August 2011. If someone knows an other good alternative…..

Since some time i am scanning with NikonScan via VirtualBox and WinXP. Works fine. Shame on Nikon that they do nothing for all the mac-users of their scanners …
