"I can't convert NEF files to JPEG on View NX2 --PLZ HELP ZE NOOB!" Thu 09-Jun-11 10:29 PM by metalheader
Hey all, first post here and a newbie to the photography world. Recently bought a D3100 and used it to capture images of a wedding. I used a Duracell 4GB SDHC (class 10) and a 16 GB version later on, for some events, everything shot in RAW.
Once I uploaded the images (and set my card to delete everything once stuff is transferred) and tried converting them into JPEG, I'd get the "unexpected error has occurred" and a non-responsive software.
I can see the preview of the pictures in the software but conversion fails. I have a feeling the NEF must be corrupted or something. I downloaded a trial of "ReaJPEG Pro" conversion software to see if it works where NX2 fails, and notice that it's not giving me problems - but some of the files look messed up. Some are just black and others make people look like green aliens (the pics have tones of green). Some of the converted files are fine though - most aren't!
Would appreciate any possible solutions as I couldn't find anything online
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: also, I'm using v2.1.2 of the software...if it helps. Oh and I am unable to retouch any of the photos without the software being unresponsive (on these possibly corrupt files).
