Cannot open my RAW pictures

Mar 29, 2013 7:46 PM

I have purchased a Nikon D600 and was having trouble opening my RAW pictures. I followed all directions, downloaded the DNG converter and still can't open my pictures. What am I doing wrong?

    Did you download DNG Converter 7.3? As a general rule, you should always use the latest version. I don't know why Adobe provides all the old ones.

     

    You didn't say which version of CS. You may need to setup DNG Converter to be backwards compatible. Open the program, click on Change Preferences, and check the Compatibility setting.

     

    Did you download your raw files using an old copy of Nikon Transfer? This is know to render some cameras' files unreadable in Camera Raw. This was fixed in the latest version of Nikon Transfer.

    Hello! In addition of the previous questions, did you point to a folder of images, using the DNG converter?

    I am having this same issue.  I am unable to see preview thumbnails of my NEF files in bridge.  I have tried to use the DNG converter for the NEF files but the tool doesn't even see the NEF files when I select the folder where their located.  Interestingly I am able to view all the NEF files in Lightroom, and the lightroom version of Camera Raw says its 7.3 which doesn't appear to be available from the adobe website.

     

    Everything is CS6

    Windows 7 x64

     

    Bridge Version - 5.0.2.4 x64

     

    Lightroom Ver - 4.3

    Camera Raw V - 7.3

     

    Photoshop Ver - 13.0.1 x64

    Camera Raw v 7.1.0.354

     

    Camera - Nikon D5200

     

     

    From Bridge, when I go to Edit>Camera Raw Preferences, I get this error:

    BridgeCamRawError.png

     

    Heres my screenshot from Bridge showing the NEF files with no preview:

    Please help, I need to start editing!!!

    Usually this problem shows up when you have an expired Adobe trial that has not been uninstalled.

    Problem solved with the 7.4 version of Camera Raw from Adobe Labs.
