May I ask, what I think may be an old question, in a different way as the problem is driving me mad.
Nikon Capture NX2 (using free trial at the moment)
HP laptop 4 GB RAM
Win 7 64 bit.
No other SW involved I use only Capture NX. All images will have that embedded no PS/elements involved.

Usually there is no problem at all for my simple needs, I transfer NEF to a seperate HD & open them as required with Cap NX2.

Suddenly have a problem with Metadata keywords (everything else is fine) If I click apply to add keywords a message says 'unable to save file'
I have cleared the cache,
Removed the HD with all my photo files on it so there are no images on the PC - no effect same fault (when I try to add keywords to a single image imported onto desktop).
I have tried TIFFs JPEGs from NEFs of D50,D200,D700 and even jpg from a compact camera.
Have also tried changing just about everything in the preferences menu to do with caching etc.

Note I can still process files and save as whatever I want, it is only the keywording thats a problem.
I dont do anything more complicated, no batch editing etc usually just add the keywords to a TIFF & a jpg together or individually.

Thanks for looking
