"Capture NX not reading .NEF files "


Te Anau, NZ
          

Hi All:

I have just started having an issue with the origianl CaptureNX. Since installing Lightroom 3.3 I can no longer use CaptureNX to edit Raw files. Has anyone seen this before? I can edit these same files in Lightroom. Thanks.

Mac or PC?

Can you be more specific please about Capture NX not reading .NEF files? Have you tried manually opening a file once CNX is launched? What is the result or error message?

You may have lost the file association of .NEF to CNX when you installed LR3 - the association may have moved to LightRoom instead.

Hi Armando:

I am using a PC. When trying to open files, I get the same error as BillboTex... "Cannot load file J:\DCIM\100D7000\DSC_0017.nef"

Also ViewNX can read the files OK. I will check the file association and reconfirm CNX as the default.

Thanks

Paul

nzyme, I just solved my problem by updating my recently bought captureNX2 version 2.1.1 to version 2.2.6

The correction was painless and quick (no need to uninstall the older cNX2)!

I did re-apply the most recent update for my version of CNX, but that did not fix the issue. I may have to upgrade to CNX2.

The only reason I had to upgrade to cNX2 ver 2.2.6 was specifically for D7000 NEFs which the upgreade stated was fixed in the newer version, and a couple other very minor corrections.

Older versions such as Capture NX do not support current cameras. You'll likely need to upgrade to Capture NX2 version 2.2.6.

Capture NX (not NX2) will not support the D300s or D7000.

Hi Eric:

That would explain a few things. I upgraded from D200 about a year ago and have not used CNX for RAW files since then. I wrongly assumed that the installation of LR3 may have contributed to my problem.
Thanks for clearing that up.

Cheers

Paul

First to clarify are you using CNX or CNX2? What camera are you using? Are you trying to open NEFs edited in LR3 in CNX or CNX2? If you are not using CNX2 2.2.6 upgrade. I don't use LR but have CS5 Extended and have no problems with NEFs in CNX2.

Hi Bob:
Sadly, I am still using CNX (1.5.3?) and my camera is a D300s. I get the error even when trying to access files while still on the CF card, or fresh copies on my computer. I can open the files using ViewNX OK.
I might have to look at an upgrade path to CNX2.

Cheers

I wouldn't be surprised if the installation of LR3 updated some critical
file or library that the old CNx cannot deal with. CNX2 has tons more
features as well.

Hi folks. I'm a newbie with this same problem: I use CNx ver 1.3.5, I think, with a D70 (don't laugh). I can open my nef images and perform a bunch of edits, but CNx never displays any RAW edit options. What am I missing? The images are listed as .nef in Camera Settings, with Quality listed as Compressed RAW (12 bit). I keep thinking that there must be something simple I need click on or off to enable RAW processing options in CNx.

Thanks,
Phil Borgerding

There are no known conflicts with NX2 and Lightroom, so the problem is probably something simple - like the installation resetting your defaults.
