I've used Photo Mechanic very happily since my D70s. I know that Nikon disabled the capacity to see the D7000's SD card as a mass storage location from my computer (Win XP). I thought it should ingest from a card reader -- yet this works with neither of my card readers, which did fine earlier. All I seem to be able to do is use Nikon Transfer or just copy from the card in the reader and paste into folder, then open the folder in Photo Mechanic to do its work. Has anyone else had these problems, and maybe a solution? I've used PM up to version 4.6.6, though haven't tried ingesting yet with 4.6.7. Thank you!
JPG or NEF files? I suspect you are shooting RAW NEF format and your version of PM has not been updated with a profile for rendering files from D7000. Rendering of RAW files is dependent on camera model specific configuration files. If this is the problem, any JPG images you have on the card should transfer fine. Stan St Petersburg Russia
I'm shooting NEFs. The card mounts, and images are on the card (that's why I can copy and paste via Window's file system through the card reader).
PM will ingest a movie file, but says its done even though there are images in the same folder on the card. It may even know there are other files there, since at the bottom of the ingest screen it says something like "0 of 65", although that doesn't change. (I'm not sure what the significance of that message really is.)
I'll try another card, just to be sure of it, too. I routinely reformat, not erase it, after I've moved the images to my computer.

Try turning 'Incremental Ingest' off and then Ingesting again.

Turns out, Kirk and Chris led me to the solution, which was to re-inspect my Ingest settings. The "Filter Files" setting was "Copy non-RAW photos" (only, it is now obvious). I switched that to "Copy RAW and non-RAW photos" and all is good, incremental and not. I don't remember changing that setting, but who knows?
Kurt, it is great that you are monitoring discussions relating to PM on the forum. It's good for users and that makes it good for PM. I checked the Camera Bits forum first, didn't see this problem (no one else is so blind), but will post there another time.
I appreciate everyone's thoughtful advice. This is the place to get that, even when overlooking such an obvious issue.
