Check with Nikon to see if there are drivers for it that would enable your Mac to "see" the slide scanner. If there are no drivers, the slide scanner won't be recognized by your Mac.

You may need an updated Firewire cable and take a look at Vuescan since the Macintosh software will no longer run on modern macs
