Sorry, Fireworks can't open those types of files. What were you hoping to do with the images in Fireworks?
I don't have a Nikon, but can't the D70 be set to save to JPG instead of RAW? Or did you have it set to RAW on purpose?
Thank you for the quick response. I chose the RAW format on purpose, as the quality of the file is better and was hoping to learn to photo edit at this level. I have used JPG files for this and they are nice too - just experimenting is all. What kind of "faw" files DOES Fireworks open? (does it even matter?)
It's always good to experiment. :)
As far as I know, Fireworks does not open any RAW file formats -- Fireworks wasn't really designed for this level of photography edits, it's designed for web production. Photoshop (which is obviously designed for photography) opens some types of RAW images.
Like I said, I don't have any Nikon equipment but I would guess your D70 came with some Nikon software to deal with RAW photos? That might be a good place to start with toying with RAW images.
Great idea! Thanks!

FW does not support RAW files.
Open it through Bridge and Camera Raw, then bring in a jpg or tiff
version into FW. Or use the Image processor in the Bridge tools menu to
save jpeg or tiff versions of multiple files.
If you don't have Bridge, then set your D70 to record in jpeg format, or
RAW plus jpeg. Note that the jpeg file created in this combination
setting is not a super high quality file.

Your D70 can also save .jpgs, or you can set it to save both .png and
.jpg. To convert, if you're on Windows, you can pick up IrfanView
( http://irfanview.com/), a free image viewing and manipulation utility.
Also grab the filters. It reads .nef files natively.
You can also pick up ufraw, a front end for dcraw:
Most raw converters use some version of dcraw as their back end. ufraw
has been compiled for most operating systems known to humankind.
Thank you so much for your suggestions. I am so glad to have found these forums!
