"ViewNX2 does not automatically ope"


Arlington, US
          

I cannot get the Transfer 2 function to open automatically when I connect my D800 (using a USB cable) to my PC. If I remove the CF or SD card and insert either into the PC's card slot, the program opens automatically. I changed the Autoplay settings via the Control Panel to reflect Transfer 2 when opening pictures, but to no avail. Any suggestions on how to remedy the problem? Thanks.

Start ViewNX2, then open Transfer. Go to "Options" and click "Source"..

Both should be activated, cameras and memory cards.

Gerald,

Thank you for the suggestion. Both "camera" and "removable disks" are checked in the source drop-down menu. However, only the latter result in Transfer 2 opening automatically; when I connect the camera via a USB cable, I still have to open Transfer 2, then select the source.

Gerold,

I uninstalled ViewNX2, and downloaded the newest version from the Nikon site. Unfortunately, Transfer 2 no longer works at all when I connect the D800 via USB. It shows the D800 icon, but then the program becomes non-responsive; I cannot get it to accept any commands, and have to go to the task manager to close it. When I insert the SD or CF card, Transfer 2 opens automatically and displays the images on the card. I'll contact Nikon, but my past experience with software problems does not leave me optimistic. Thanks for your help.

Remove ViewNX and run this program from Nikon:

RegSweeper2.

Then install again.

Gerold,

I ran the RegSweep program, then reinstalled ViewNX2. I still have the same problem. Transfer 2 opens automatically when I insert a card; when I connect the camera, I cannot open images even though the D800 icon appears. The program becomes unresponsive and I have to close it with the Task Manager.

Depending on the speed of your camera and card, it can take some time to load and display all the thumbnails on a card. Are you giving it enough time to open? What is your hardware configuration? USB 2.0 or 3.0?

Try starting with a fresh card that just has a few images. That removes the speed issue.

Are you running into any issue when you manually launch Transfer from View NX2? Are you using the version of Transfer embedded in View or a separate download. And is it the latest version?

Eric,

I am using USB 2.0, and the card is not a fast one (45 mb/sec). I took your advice and reformatted the card and took a few images. Still no luck; when I connect the D800 to the PC, Transfer 2 does not open. However, the program at least now recognizes the camera and lets me download the images manually from this card. By comparison, when I connect the D800 with a full card, Transfer 2 neither opens automatically nor lets me download the images manually. If I insert the same card directly into my PC, Transfer 2 opens near-instantaneously.

Paul,

From the Nikon web site about transferring photos:

*Please note that the transfer function will not transfer images from serial connected cameras. Use of a memory card reader is recommended. This option allows images shot with much older Nikon digital cameras to be used with the latest Nikon software.

Bob,
Thank you for the information. My older cameras (D200, etc) worked with the old Transfer program when I connected them directly, so I thought the D800/Transfer 2 combination would also work. I can now give up tilting at windmills!
