"View NX2 upgrade download problem"


Waynesville, US
          

I downloaded an upgrade to my View NX2 and installed it however the desktop shortcut and program for Nikon Transfer disappeared and I am unable to find it anywhere on my computer. Any ideas?

Hi Geoff,

I believe Transfer is now part of the View NX program. You need to launch it and assuming the program properly detects an inserted memory/flash card, you will have a Transfer button somewhere on the upper left of the menu bar when View NX launches. It's been hokey at times - I've had cards inserted in my reader and Transfer remains grayed out, but the last two upgrades, it's been working like a champ.

Thank you Armando. As you probably guessed I am techno challenged so I appreciate this. I'm sure that somewhere in the download instructions this was indicated - but I must have missed it. Will come back if I have problems.

It is still possible to download and use the old Nikon Transfer program from the Nikon Download site, but DON'T DO IT without a really good reason. The old product does not support newer cameras and will corrupt images.

Eric, thank you. I have a D90 so by your post might not be a problem? But this is good for me, and others, to know. I'm surprised that Nikon did not make this more obvious in their download availability notification and preamble.

The old version of Nikon Transfer has been discontinued for quite some time - since the initial release of View NX2. There may be issues beyond the file corruption. In any event, I don't see any reason to use it.

The old version does have fine print describing that it will not operate properly with newer cameras. I am sure there is some obscure reason for not removing it completely, but it would save a lot of headaches if they provided better notification - for example, a warning pop up that indicates it is an old version and should not be used.
