"Bridge/DNG Converter Is Corrupting Files"


Edmond, US
          

I am running CS5 and using the Bridge utility to transfer files to my computer. I am shooting with a D800E and attempting to convert NEF files to DNG. I am using a current model Lexar USB 3.0 card reader. Each time I try to offload the files some of them are corrupt (showing either vertical or horizontal streaks across the image). According to the update utility in Bridge all updates are current. The current version of the Adobe DNG converter is 7.2. I don't know how to find out which version of the converter is being employed by Bridge in CS5. I don't want to install more software until I am able to figure out what is going on. I have transferred the files to different hard drives and tested a couple of compactflash cards to make sure that neither of those elements is the source of the problem. It therefore appears that the problem is with the DNG conversion process. I should also mention that the NEF files transfer without a problem. It is only when I try to convert to DNG that the problem occurs. If anyone has any suggestions as to what to do about this problem I will appreciate hearing from you.

Jim, the last version of ACR for CS5 is 6.7.

This Adobe webpage says 6.7 should be compatible with your 800E --

The download webpage for ACR 6.7 calls the file to download
"Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter"

Hi Larry,

Yes, I have ACR 6.7 installed. I also downloaded and installed the latest version of the DNG converter. I still experienced a problem.

I have decided to forego the DNG conversion with the D800E files anyway. I am not concerned about the NEF files becoming unreadable at this time. If there comes a time when I am I will revisit the issue.

Thanks for your reply.

JDT
