Ugh.... After much much searching as to why I couldn't open up the RAW .NEF files with anything I found that there is a recent raw update for adobe products.
Now if I can just figure out what update i need in OSX....

Welcome to Nikonians,

What Adobe product are you using to process your NEF files. There are a couple of Adobe products and some use Adobe's ACR plug-in or need a minor version update.

Adobe has released ACR, Adobe Camera RAW, version 5.5 plug-in for Adobe® Creative Suite® 4 or Adobe® Photoshop® CS4 software. If you Adobe product is an older version of any of those products, you can not install this plug-in.

Camera Raw 5.5 update for Macintosh CS4, PS CS4, Photoshop Elements or Premiere Elements
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.5 - English, French, German

The above links are for Macintosh and they point to the instructions and downloads. The instructions provide a lot of details about the updates and how to install the plug-in or product. If you have Photoshop Elements or Premiere Elements will need to scroll down to the link for instructions on how manually install the plug-in.

You could install Adobe's DNG Converter to convert the NEF files to the DNG format and then use your older Adobe product to open the DNG version of the file.

You could also use Nikon ViewNX to open the NEF and then use ViewNX's "File => Open with..." to directly transfer a TIFF image of the NEF with the camera settings applied to the image. You will need to use the most recent Nikon ViewNX.

Links for the Windows users:

Adobe DNG Converter 5.5 update

I was using photoshop cs4, and after installing the update I was able to get it to work with the raws. However, I'm still unable to open the raws in iphoto, or preview, which I guess isn't really a big deal since I'm processing them all to .tif or .png.

iPhoto and preview are MacIntosh products, check for system updates for your computer

Yeah, that's what I had thought. But I am completely up to date. Maybe they haven't released the support yet for snow leopard?
