Your NEF may not be corrupted, but the camera may have some settings enabled that VNX2 cannot process - application of items like Active Digital Lighting and other in-camera changes may require you to go to Capture NX2 in order for those changes to be read. Try zeroing your settings in the camera (no ADL, no B&W or art filters, etc.), shoot a test RAW and try again.
