    Default Transfering Raw Files

    I've started shooting in Raw format and I've got a little hick up. If I transfer files on my laptop, JPEG files come up as thumbnails and RAW files don't. Which is bloody annoying. If I transfer on my work PC, all shots come up as thumbnails.

    Have I forgoten to tick all the boxes ? I couldn't find a setting under settings. Would I have to reload Nikon Transfer on my laptop again ??

    BTW: Can a Mod fix this please ?

    Glenn, I suspect Nikon RAW is like Canon RAW and needs a plugin so that Windows can display it as it's not a native file format.

    Didn't realise he had soooo much power!! Besides, I thought it was one of those things that couldn't be changed, as I was sure someone must have mentioned it before now. Do struggle to get a word in most of the time, especially when his 'mini-me' is around too.

    Here is the link for downloading codec required for windows to display thumbnail image.
    http://nikonimglib.com/nefcodec/

    Unfortunately, it need little trick on 64bit machine. Goggle is your friend here for running explorer in 32bit mode.

    For Canon RAW images I have this installed - but it does not work
    Microsoft RAW Image Thumbnailer and Viewer for Windows XP
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    "Supported camera models and RAW image types: Most current models of Canon and Nikon cameras are supported"

    I have just reinstalled it (Later version) and still no luck.

    I agree Glenn , it is bloody annoying !

    I'm fairly sure I didn't tick all the file type boxes when I put it on the laptop, because at that stage I didn't know what raw was. I spoke to my IT guy and he said to reinstall over the file. It works properly here at work, so I'll give it ago. My laptop will do both 34 & 64 bit so I'm sure its me and nothing else.. will update when I've tried it as I've got the latest version as well.

    Will be interested to know how you get on

    I have tried installing over the top and then uninstalling and reinstal but it is still the same. I did tick the boxes too.

    I think maybe my 450D must be one of the unsupported models
    I downloaded the White Paper doc and seems to be the case - it mentions
    the 300D and Rebel XT

    Hope you have better luck with your .nef files

    Basically create shotcut to run this
    %systemroot%\SysWow64\Explorer.exe

    See here for detail:
    http://extended64.com/blogs/bhpaddoc...05/22/539.aspx
    You can find lot's of article for this. This is workaround until Nikon offering 64bit codec.
    I found once the thumbnail db is generated, it can show in 64bit shell in some case.

    I gave up trying to get the MS thumbnailer to work and after trying various bits of software got a freeware codec pack called "fastpictureviewer"

    works really well (even better/faster than the Adfry codec that I bought at one stage) looking at thir website, they've gone to a paid version since, but really $6 US isn't going to break the bank.
    see: http://www.fastpictureviewer.com/codecs/

    pm me if you want to try their earlier freeware version as I've still got a copy of the install file.

    Glen, I also have this problem and the way I get around it is to turn off the downloader when I plug in the card. I then go to "My Computer" and find the drive that is showing the card - in my case, it's called E-Nikon D80, and open up the suceeding folders in that drive until I can see all the images. Then a quick "Select all" under the edit button, and copy to a folder of my choice on the hard-drive. Picks up both the jpegs and the RAWs. No twiddling, no dodgy codex.
    Nikon D80, Nikon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G, Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6, Nikon 35mm f/1.8G, Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro, Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 older screw-type, Nikon 70-300VR f/4.5-5.6G. Various filters and grads, elderly Velbon tripod (finger biter).

    F l i c k r


    (I give up trying to get a nice, simple "Flickr" here. )

    Allow me

    Dah-lingk!! *mwah*

    Thanks Duncan - that looks a good one.I downloaded a codec pack from here http://www.free-codecs.com/Canon_RAW_Codec_download.htm over 60mb and it was of no use.
    I remembered I have a freeby prog called FastStone Image viewer and it displays them fine, as does the Canon EOS ultility. I would just like to be able to see the thumbnail view in a normal folder.



    Sorry Glenn - I will butt out now

    Thank god.... got it all going.... uninstall...reinstall with new Nikon codec upgrade. It asked for this during the install. Use Nikon View NX...wow... I now have Raw & Jpeg thumbnails, all on the same page. Set default to open files with Capture NX2 all working now. This info wont help other camera users though.

    Edit: Just wondering whether a Canon user could load the Nikon software and use the Nikon ViewNX as the destination folder for their images too ? Quite happy to lend the CD to someone if they want to try it.

    I just downloaded nama5 and can now see Canon Raw, DNG and Olympus ORF thumbnails in (WinXP) Explorer. It's free and only 491kb download. No 64bit support though.
