One of two situations is likely to have occurred:
1) You need to select a FOLDER not open the folder when specifying the Source in the DNGC.
2) The images will become corrupted if you use older Nikon software on newer camera images.
To resolve issue one, single-click on the folder name in the list to select it, don’t double-click to open it.
To resolve issue two, test by copying new images from the camera memory card to your computer without touching (copying or viewing) them with any Nikon software, and uninstall the older software. You may find that you don’t need Nikon software at all, but only use that came with your new camera, and perhaps that also won’t work. If the images are already deleted off your camera memory card, then you can uncorrupt the NEFs by using a utility from the following webpage: http://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/fix_corrupted_nef.html
Thanks for the reply.
I have tried 1) above but to no avail.
I did read early conversations and just tried c/: . Needed Administration control, seemed to try and find many NEF files and started a conversion process. However issued unknown naming to the files and basically I couldn't find them anywhere on my C/; drive.
Not a satisfactory way to manage the files.
I will try 2) above as I am using early versions of ViewNX2 and the old NIkon Transfer V 1.0.2
The files are corrupted for sure.
However, in the DNGC you WILL NEVER SEE FILES LISTED because you’re selecting a folder and it only shows folders to choose from.
Updating the ViewNX2 with Nikon Transfer 2 has fixed the issues. Can now see the NEF files I can convert to .dng and can now work in Bridge and Photoshop.
Both your points were valid. Thank you kindly. Regards Kingsley
