I recently purchased a Nikon D 800 camera. My first full frame camera. However when I tried to download some RAW test shots from the camera, They appear in Iphoto 11. HOwever when I download them I end up with a message saying that the files are unreadable.
I've checked the Iphoto preferences and they seem fine.
BTW my computer is a fairly new Mac Pro.
The pics do down load in NX View which came with the camera. However I like to work in Iphoto as I usually do a minimum of post processing.
Any suggestions.

Thanks Much

This page at Apple Support indicates you should be able to download Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 3.13 to support the D800 on Mac OS X v10.6.8 as long as you've got iPhoto installed (which you do):

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3825

If you haven't installed all of the Apple updates to your Mac, you should do so first. Always do operating system updates as they're pushed to you or as they become available. You need to do that in order to ensure that RAW compatibility updates install properly. If your operating system is already up-to-date, then just go ahead and download and install the RAW update 3.13.

As new cameras are released by various makers, the photo editing software developers and operating system developers scramble to create good quality RAW file converters as quickly as they can.

Wow that was quick. Thanks much for the info I downloaded the RAW update 3.13 and my problem was solved. The photos are uploading to Iphoto 11 with no problems.

Thanks again for the help!

Excellent. Enjoy editing those NEF files. iPhoto works well - Apple has put a lot of development effort into it (although the last major update was quite a while ago).
