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!
