I have just acquired a D800 to replace my D700, and have been setting it up.

All wentfine until the final action – to download test files from the camera to the computer. As I have Windows 7x64bit, CNX2 and View NX2 and Nikon Transfer 2 very latest versions already installed and in use, it did not seem necessary to use the View NX 2 CD which came with the camera. I did finally try it, but it reported that the latest versions were already installed.

When I connected the camera to the computer, I at first thought that nothing had happened as nothing appeared on the screen. Then a search revealed that the files were on my computer under C Users> My Pictures folder (each of about 45MB).

They would not open because they were trying to open via Windows Media Player, which could not recognise them. Then I deleted them and found that the same files on the card in the camera became deleted (sorry, you couldn’t make it up!).

I did notice in a previous discussion that “Inside ViewNX2 is a version of Nikon Transfer that works with the D800”, but I could not find it.

At no stage did I get an opportunity to select the destination, or delete unwanted pictures as was normal with the D700. I actually wanted to transfer them to a new hard disk on the computer reserved for the D800 pictures.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

PS I was totally amazed by the technical quality of the D800 files.
