Hi folks,
A short question from a total beginner.... I've just attempted to transfer the most recent efforts from my 5100 and it appears as though the programme wants to download all files on the card instead of just those that were taken today: this even though the previous 600 photos are already displayed as thumbnails!

I'm probably missing something basic but the "Help" file didn't tell me much. Not a major issue but it will slow me down eventually if I can't resolve it. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Correct, it does transfer everything on the card. The expectation is that after you transfer and verify, you should reformat the card (in the camera) thus deleting previous files.

I assume that you are referring to ViewNX2 and also assuming that you are downloading the current images to the same directory as the ones that you have previously downloaded, I think that the program will only transfer the new ones. Even if the program wants to download all of the images, I think that your computer will probably give you the choice of replacing or skipping the ones that had been downloaded earlier. You should try answering affirmatively one time just to see what happens.

I haven't had to download everything (except when a new card was put in.
You have the ability to choose the desired photos to transfer.

Thanks JP. Haven't seen an option to choose or select the files to transfer, even though i was expecting the same. Away from my computer for a few days but will play around with it when i get back.
