"Photo Mechanic won't ingest from D7000"


Pittsford, US
          

I've used Photo Mechanic very happily since my D70s.
I know that Nikon disabled the capacity to see the D7000's SD card as a mass storage location from my computer (Win XP). I thought it should ingest from a card reader -- yet this works with neither of my card readers, which did fine earlier.
All I seem to be able to do is use Nikon Transfer or just copy from the card in the reader and paste into folder, then open the folder in Photo Mechanic to do its work.
Has anyone else had these problems, and maybe a solution? I've used PM up to version 4.6.6, though haven't tried ingesting yet with 4.6.7.
Thank you!

Robb,

Photo Mechanic won't Ingest directly from a camera unless the card in the camera shows up as an actual disk on your computer.

But I take it that you're saying even if you take the card out of your D7000 and put it into a dedicated card reader your card won't mount as a disk on your computer?

That's really odd. Are you sure the card has has been formatted and has images on it?

Kind regards,

-Kirk

Robb -yes that's very odd. I used PM 4.6.6 and it works via a card reader and also using the built in card slot in the iMac without any problems - exactly the same with 4.6.7 too.

Perhaps a badly/wrongly formatted card?

JPG or NEF files?
I suspect you are shooting RAW NEF format and your version of PM has not been updated with a profile for rendering files from D7000. Rendering of RAW files is dependent on camera model specific configuration files.
If this is the problem, any JPG images you have on the card should transfer fine.

Thank you, Kirk, Chris & Stan,

I'm shooting NEFs. The card mounts, and images are on the card (that's why I can copy and paste via Window's file system through the card reader).

PM will ingest a movie file, but says its done even though there are images in the same folder on the card. It may even know there are other files there, since at the bottom of the ingest screen it says something like "0 of 65", although that doesn't change. (I'm not sure what the significance of that message really is.)

I'll try another card, just to be sure of it, too. I routinely reformat, not erase it, after I've moved the images to my computer.

Have you update PM to v4.6.7? That might do the trick. Also, if you stillhave problems, post a note in the Camera Bits support forum. You will probably get a very quick answer.

You might also try reinstalling the software - a pain, but can work!

The Camera Bits Forums are very responsive, as mklass says.

Good luck,

I just upgraded to a new computer with Windows 7 64 bit and ran into a similar problem yesterday. There was a Photo Mechanic fix necessary to make ingestion work:

But I gather from your message you are still at Win XP. Is that correct?

Try turning 'Incremental Ingest' off and then Ingesting again.

Robb...

I'm successfully using my D7000 with Windows XP Home SP 3 and Photo Mechanic 4.5.4; I am able to upload the SD Card through a card reader and thereby ingest both NEF and JPEGs.

Sorry, I have no solution.

Best Regards, Dennis.

At least demonstrating how it should work, so I know there will be a solution. Thanks!

You don't have "Copy Locked Files Only" turned on in the ingest dialogue box by any chance do you? That would prevent ingest.

Good luck,

Chris

Turns out, Kirk and Chris led me to the solution, which was to re-inspect my Ingest settings. The "Filter Files" setting was "Copy non-RAW photos" (only, it is now obvious). I switched that to "Copy RAW and non-RAW photos" and all is good, incremental and not. I don't remember changing that setting, but who knows?

Kurt, it is great that you are monitoring discussions relating to PM on the forum. It's good for users and that makes it good for PM. I checked the Camera Bits forum first, didn't see this problem (no one else is so blind), but will post there another time.

I appreciate everyone's thoughtful advice. This is the place to get that, even when overlooking such an obvious issue.
