Had been using my D90, Nikon transfer and CNX2 without issue for the last several years. Loaded my files from cards using Nikon Transfer and then used CNX2 to review and edit the images.

Got my D7100 yesterday. Took some pictures of my bookshelf late at night and followed the same process to upload the pics through Nikon transfer and edit in CNX2. Discovered that there was little to adjust in camera settings in CNX2, for example there was nothing to change white balance or from normal to vivid etc. The options simply had vanished.

Loaded View NX2, which includes Nikon transfer 2 and imported the same images again. Lo and behold the camera settings were normal, could adjust WB and adjust picture settings, normal to vivid, etc. again. Somehow Nikon transfer was doing something to the NEF images from the D7100 and was not importing them correctly. All is good but .... has anyone else experienced this issue.

Thanks for your help.
