"Unsupported File Format" Error with D1X RAW Files
When attemting to open NEF files in Nikon Capture (ver. 4.1.2) from a Hitachi 2gb Microdrive, I have the following problem:
- I select the open files in Multi Image Window option;
- Files upload from the Microdrive through my Lexar CF Firewire Reader
- Some files open with an image preview, others are shown in thumbnails with the Nikon Capture logo and the file name
- The files with an image preview open OK, but the others give me a error reading of "Unsupported File Format"
I then have to use Lexar Image Rescue to recover the images with the error reading.
This seems to be random, happening to 1 or 2 images sometimes, and at other times affecting all of the files.
I am using a Mac G5 1.8 DP running OS 10.3.4 and a D1X with Firmware ver. 1.10.
Disk Utility shows the Microdrive to be fine and I've reformatted it several times without problems.
Any help would be most appreciated!

At first blush it sounds like corruption during file transfer. Is Image Rescue giving you any diagnostics?
What tools have you used to copy the files from your CF card to your hard disk? Were any provided with the reader? It appears that you opening them directly from the CF card in Nikon Capture? Try copying them to your disk first. You can use just about any file manager, Photoshop, or Nikon View. If any errors occur during the transfer you should be informed. It might be a problem with your firewire connection.
This should not be happening. Good Luck…
