    The D7100 was not supported until the Camera Raw plug-in version 7.4 that was released this week.  Adobe only supports their current version of a particular software application, where PSE10 is too old to have updates, anymore.

     

    So you can , either:

     

    Upgrade to PSE11 which is compatible with ACR 7.4, or

     

    Download and use the free DNG Converter 7.4 to convert your NEF files that are too new for PSE10 into DNG files that are still raw but have enough information to be supported by your older PSE and ACR versions.

     

    The DNGC 7.4 is available and currently near the top of the updates listed, here:

     

    http://www.adobe.com/downloads/updates/

     

    The DNGC converts an entire folder of files at a time so you need to point it to a folder, only, not an individual raw file.

     

    For your older version of PSE and ACR, you will need to set a compatibility option to something older than ACR 7.1, otherwise the DNG files will be using a standard too new to work.

    You can put an alias to the DNG converter on your desktop and drop a single file on it to convert just the one, or a folder.

    If you want to edit your NEF files it would be necessary to upgrade to PSE11 (updated with ACR 7.4) or if you shoot entirely in raw, you could try the free trial of Lightroom 4. It’s possible to set up Ligtroom 4 with PSE10 as the external editing application.
