Upgraded to Windows 10, using Photoshop CS5 and trying to download NEF files from my Nikon D700. Can't read/find the files. Downloaded Nikon RAW codec and installed - still not reading the files.

Any suggestions?

thanks

Photoshop doesn't have anything to do with downloading your files from a camera or memory card.

What exactly are you using to download the files?
And are you having trouble downloading, or reading the files (separate things)?

Well, good question.

I'm using CS5 Bridge (Get Photos from Camera) which then tells me the source (the Nikon D700) has no valid files. But I know it does because I can see them on the camera.

However, its not just Bridge doing this. I tried opening the camera file with File Explorer (or whatever it is that Windows uses) and it simply said the file (in the camera) was empty.

Originally, I thought this was a problem with NEF (Nikon RAW) photos. So I tested by shooting in RAW/fine mode, which records both a RAW and jpeg image. Neither are being detected.

Soooo...is this starting to sound like a D700 problem? I did not have this problem until recently - only after upgrading to Windows 10. But it reads the same files from every other source (MyBook, flash drives, etc.) so...issue with the camera?

Thanks

Yeah, that is starting to sound like a problem with the camera, memory card reader, or driver code.
