    .nef file corruption

    ciapponi18

      hello, i recovered .nef raw image files from a dead external drive.  i now can not open them in any program.  the message i get in CS6 is 'could not complete your request because the file-format module cannot parse the file.' 

       

      originally the extension was .NEF now it is .nef- i dont know if that makes a difference, but i hope the file is somewhat corrupted but still fixable.

       

      usually the .NEF file has a .xmp sidecar file with it.  these ended up separated from the original .NEF when the files were corrupted, and i cant match them up.

       

      any ideas or help appreciated.

       

      thanks!
