NEF files are not opening

I don't know what I am doing wrong, but my NEF files will not open in Bridge or ACR.  If I click on the NEF icon that is shown in bridge it opens it in Photoshop but I cannot view the thumbnails in Bridge or use ACR with those files. Any suggestions?

If you used the installer, then you cannot possibly have the plug-in in the wrong place.  Disregard the other poster's misdirection.
For the record, the correct path is as follows:
Command-Click on thumbnail to see full-size image in a new tab
What you need to do is Purge the Cache through the Tools menu in Bridge:  Tools > Cache > Purge Cache for folder "xxxyyyzzz" for the offending folder(s).
DO NOT use the global Purge Cache command in Bridge Preferences; it's broken.
Command-Click on thumbnail to see full-size image in a new tab

  • Nikon D7000 .NEF files are not opening

    I am a new, lucky owner of the Nikon D7000 but, sadly, am unable to open my RAW (.NEF) files in iPhoto -- I am told that the files are an "Unreadable" format.
    Now, while I may use the Nikon software provided, I would much rather use iPhoto for my editing.
    Is there anything I might be able to do -- drivers, codecs (?) -- to get this opening?

    I'm in the same boat here. What I've done so far is to use Adobe DNG Converter (free) to convert the NEF to DNG. Then drag the folder with the DNG files into iPhoto.
    With another batch of files I converted to DNG, then did the sorting and editing in Adobe Bridge and Camera Raw. Then converted the whole bunch to jpg and imported them into iPhoto. I also imported only the highest rated DNG images. (Note that any Camera Raw processing will not be used by iPhoto, but it remains in the DNG file)

  • Webarchive files are not opening- what to do?

    My webarchive files are not opening.  I have a lot saved from previous months of research.  I never had a problem opening them before.  Now all of a sudden I get a page from mywebsearch that simply says "Recently closed."  All of them...even the ones I saved this afternoon.
    Can someone help?

  • PDF files are not opening in IE!!!

    Some PDF files are not displayed while opening in browser IE . The PDF files are generated through servlets (JWS 2.1). While analysing the problem we have found that the one request invokes the doget() method of the servelet more than once. This problem is not appearing in netscape.
    Please give suggestions.

    I am having the same sort of problem. I have a form posting to a servlet that displays a pdf based on the vars posted to it. My doPost() calls doGet(). When I post to the the servlet the doPost() is called and then it calls the doGet() and then SOMETHING else calls the doGet() again. Since the vars that I am using to load the pdf are posted they are out of scope for the second doGet(). I tried two things to fix this:
    I changed my doPost() method to do nothing but check the request variables and hold on to them. Then I changed my doGet() to use the values that I held instead of the request vars. This only worked sometimes.
    Then when I rolled all of my code back and changed my form from POST to GET everything worked fine. It seems that there is something that causes the browser to always call the GET when you are using application/pdf. If my doPost() calls my doGet() everything is lost on the second doGet()

  • Music files are not opening in itunes.

    My music files will not open in itunes and is not recognised in the library. I have the files in the 'My Music' file however when looking at the music file it say the file is locked? is there anyway I can get my itunes to recognise the music files?

    I finally removed those audio and video files from iPhone, although it will be tough to add them back to iPhone, but at least I saved the phone spaces.
    I used software something like iTools, delete everything under File System / User / iTunes Control, then restart phone, that simple, usage count, spaces used are all correct now.

  • EML files are not opened in the browser

    EML files opened from a SharePoint 2010 document libraries are not opened in the browser. Instead, a dialog box is opened and prompts to save the file.  
    Since there's no standard application that knows how to handle EML files, and since the EML format is built into SP (send emails to document libraries), I think this behavior is unacceptable.
    EML files should be opened in the browser, similar to SP 2007.  

    Seems the solution is in the client side configuration.
    If eml files (as all other file types) are not configured to open by default in Outlook 2007 (or Windows Live Mail), they will be prompted for download or open.
    The registry change link I provided earlier did not work for me. I tried this:!6C7F16530F119E8D!3092.entry+how+to+configure+sharepoint+to+opem+eml+file+in+outlook+2007%3F&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us& and
    solved my problem. Seems by default eml file set to MIME message/rfc822 and associated with windows live mail - SharePoint team hates Outlook team, right?
    If you do not have such assoication, it opens in browser!
    My settings: MOSS 2007, windows 7, outlook 2007.

  • My D5200 NEF files do not open in Photoshop 14

    I have Nikon D5200, and according to Adobe, its Raw NEF files should open in Camera Raw 7.3 or later. However I have Camera Raw 8 in my photoshop 14 and it still says cannot open files, and suggests me to upgrade the plugin.
    However, when i try to upgrade, it says i have latest plugins installed, which is correct.
    I also have installed DNG converter 8.3 but it is also not detecting any raw files.
    Please help
    Thank you

    As Curt Y mentioned, either your ACR plugin is in the wrong location, or you have more than one ACR plugin for your version of Photoshop and they are conflicting.
    With the DNG coverter, it is important to understand that DNG converters only works on folders that contain raw files.
    Select the folder and then convert. This will convert all the raw files within the folder.
    If you  ry to use DNG converter to open the folder to select individual files this won't work.
    Select the folder not the individual files.

  • Nikon NEF Files will not Open in Photoshop CS2

    In OS Leopard w/Aperture 2, there was never a problem opening RAW .NEF Files.
    Now with Snow Leopard and Aperture 3...I get a message that the format is unrecognizable.
    My system and PS2 are fully updated to current versions.
    Thank in advance for any help.

    You are correct in the RAW decoding engine used in Camera Raw (would be version 3.x in the CS2).
    As you know, Adobe Camera Raw is included with each new release of Photoshop since CS came about. However, they generally only update the current version of ACR for new camera models.
    The work-around (Adobe solution) for using older versions of ACR / PS is to convert the RAW files to DNG files using their free Adobe DNG converter, which allows compatibility for newer camera models (same solution offered to many with new unsupported cameras in Aperture).
    Not sure whether this is the problem for the OP though, as the opening sentence indicates successful use with AP2 and 10.5?
    Note - not sure what Adobe will do overall with Lightroom updates as they have been offering those at the same time as the ACR updates. LR3 and CS5 should clear some of this up.

  • .nef files will not open in photoshop

    From Lightroom 5.7.1, I can not open .nef files into photoshop. I get an error message:  The file could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 could not be launched.  Photoshop does launch and open but file does not.

    Hi, I am currently experiencing the same issue as you, and its driving me crazy. I know how you feel.
    All my images in LR are basically dead. I can see them, but I cant work on them. Its as though LR5 is dead on my PC.
    I use NEF too, some of them have asked me to change the file extension to a DNG. I have yet to try it, coz for the past 2hr, I have failed to 'Back up' my da** LR catalog.
    I wish that you solve your issue soon.

  • Some svg files are not opening in adobe illustrator

  • EPS and Tiff Files are not open...

    Dear All,
    If we open the EPS or Tiff file in Illustrator CS3, we got the error message as in the screenshot which named as “Illustrator screenshot.jpg”.
    If we open the EPS or Tiff file in Photoshop CS3, we got the error message as in the screenshot which named as “Photoshop screenshot.jpg”.
    We unable to open the file both in Illustrator and Photoshop. Is there any other option to open the file? Please advice.
    I’ve attached the images and screenshots for your better reference.
    Thanks in advance.
    Kumaran. P

    These files are completely corrupt. I got the same error messages you did in Illustrator and Photoshop.
    The EPS files look quite hopeless. (They do not remotely resemble EPS files when viewed in a text editor.) The TIFF file opened in IrfanView. I've resaved it as a JPEG and attached it here. You can see that it's truncated.
    You didn't mention how you obtained the files.

  • D7100, .nef files will not open, batch rename naming files differently

    I recently purchased the D7100/Nikon and I am having problems opening the nef files in Bridge and Photoshop CS6 (even after updating – Raw 8.4) and also renaming the files.  Lightroom 4.4, no problem.
    I also tried batch renaming the files, and Bridge is not keeping the .jpg and .nef files consistent as with my old camera (D90). Also, it is creating a new date on the .nef file, rather than keeping it to the day it was shot.
    Old way:
    I do use the DNG converter to convert the .nef files, and keep all file names consistent (.jpg, .nef, .dng).
    Is something lacking in the updates for Bridge/Photoshop for this camera to view the .nef files?  Is there anything I can do in Bridge to fix the Batch Renaming?  I really do not want to go to each .nef file and rename each one individually.  Help!

    You probably forgot to include the extension .dng or renamed with an extra dot (.) in the filename. Be surr to have only 1 dot with the three letter extension dng at the end (. dng)
    You can use Bridge for that again to rename and use the dng extension
