Windows Photo Gallery, does it support D700 NEF images?
I just started using my new Dell computer with Vista 64 bit as the operating system and Windows Photo Gallery downloaded Nikon D300 & D300s NEF readability. Does Windows Photo Gallery have a download for D700 NEF files? My second question is, does the New Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 open D700 NEF files?
Hope someone can help me out!

A codec is required to enable Windows applications like Explorer to display thumbnails and previews from nef files. For some reason Nikon refuses to provide a codec for 64-bit Windows. There are third party solutions available. This thread, entitled NEF codec for Vista 64bit, talks about two of them. I have not tried either of them. The Ardfry codec sounded interesting when it was first described, but I wasn't interested in paying for this minor feature. I have not tried the new codec from Fast Picture Viewer.

>Thanks for the disapointing information. What do you use to
>look at your NEF files?
i happen to use nikons free viewNX.
there is no nikon 64 bit useable codec for viewing .nefs so i use for my d700 viewNX for browsing, Nikon Transfer for Transfering and a few other littler exif related things....and NX2.2.2 for raw work...
rarely if at all using CS2-3-4.
my machine is an i7 940 and has no problem at all with nx2, etc.
i wish nikon had a 64 bit codec but that doesn't seem to be on their front burner at the moment. and as a 1 year canon convert i will gladly trade the ability not to see anything other than icons in windows explorer for the rest that nikon offers me in my d700. nx2 while apaid app to me is worth every dime after using Digital Professional Pro (free) from canon. miles apart.
good luck on the codec search.
Happy Nikon convert from Canon...
