Nikon D810 raw files are supported in Lightroom version 5.6 and above: Cameras supported by Adobe Camera Raw
Which version of Lightroom do you have?
What error message do you have while importing these files in Lightroom?
Lightroom is what I am working with. On the preview screen I am getting the "Preview unavailable" error, and they I try to import I recieve a pop-up stating that the import was not preformed.
Thanks for sharing that information.
What is the source of import?
Did you use Nikon transfer to download the images on your machine?
Would suggest you to try to import directly from the sd card.
Correct. I download all images from my D810 compact flash thrrough Nikon transfer, cull the images, then import to lightroom from my hard drive.
Why would this be happening now, but was working just fine last week?
I can even still import the images that were previously imported from my hard drive, just not these specific images.
I also use compact flash cards. Is it something embedded within the image from the camera?
I believe Nikon Transfer is causing the corruption of images.
What if you try to import the images directly using card?
>Correct. I download all images from my D810 compact flash thrrough Nikon transfer,
You should definitely NOT do that. Nikon transfer when you use a version from before the camera came out that you are using corrupts images so they can no longer be used in non-Nikon software (not just Lightroom but almost all third-party raw converters). It's very strange but many people have run into this issue. The link F.McLion posted sometimes is able to fix these files.
So if I downloaded the files directly through lightroom I would be able to avoid this issue? Its so strange that I have literally used Nikon tranfer to download thousand images and this is the first time I have come across this.
Thank you all for your help!
It depends on the camera. You probably just recently switched to the D810 but didn't update Nikon Transfer or Nikon hasn';t updated its app itself yet.
