Thanks, but yes, I was inserting it correctly. Turns out I had actually purchased 2 defective carriers in a row! I finally got a good one and all is well.

Make sure that the computer you are using meets the criteria for the program with both the operating system and hardware. If so, try un-installing the camera software and then re-installing it. Beyond this, the problem can become a little complicated and require you to call the tech support from Nikon. They should know what it required to make their program function properly.

If, by SOFT images you are referring to a scan that has the look of the soft-focus lenses they use for aging actresses, and the darks are over-run with a glow from the the lights, it's probably as simple as a dirty reflecting mirror.

If when facing the front of the machine there is a lens/scanner pointing directly at you, inside the machine, below the Magazine insertion hole.

Between you and that lens is a little 45° mirror that bounces the film's image to the lens.

That mirror, which faces away form you in a vertical orientation, will 'fog' over time from smoke and grime -- microscopic particles of dust -- settling on the mirror surface. It makes the light beams scatter, making pictures look like this:

But with the instructions (for a similar model) found here, you can easily clean the mirror (I used windex and a cotton ball after removing the mirror.

Now I get scans that look like this:

Nikon 4.0.2 isn't supported on 10.5

I suggest you look at VueScan which does work under 10.5 and 10.6 with your scanner, and they have a free download to test first
