Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera
When I transfer SD card RAW files to computer and try to open them with CS2, SOME of the files cannot be opened and appear in preview to have big streaks through them as if partially downloaded or corrupted in transfer. Is this a camera problem or computer problem? Suggestions?

If youre using exposure bracketing, especially when raw+jpeg is used, this is saving out massive amounts of data to the memory card. Have you tried using a faster (80x) memory card and/or just using raw alone? You can always make the jpeg at the computer later.

SOURCE: Raw Mode
Most digital cameras have modes which allow only certain resolutions and when set to various settings.
Each setting can affect the way the camera reacts.
Read your manual, if you do not have one, then download it from Nikon.
Nearly every digital camera made today has online access for free download of the various items such as manuals, software, and drivers.
I know that some digital camera makers are skimpy on their downloads and information.
Nikon and Canon are two companies which are very good on support.

The D3000 can store still images in two different formats. JPEG is a standard format, recognized by just about every image viewer and image manipulation program in the world. RAW is actually NEF (Nikon Electronic Format), a Nikon-proprietary format which incorporates almost all of the data captured by the sensor, without the processing of JPEG. JPEG files have the color balance, sharpening, contrast, and all the other camera settings done on the picture. With RAW files, you can change any or all of them and produce new JPEGs. In this respect the RAW file is similar to the original negative you get from processed film, while the JPEG file is like the final print. RAW files need special software for viewing and editing.
All JPEG files are compressed to save space. FINE, NORM, and BASIC represent different levels of compression. FINE does the least compression and takes up the most space, BASIC does the most compression and takes up the least space. Compression always loses some quality, so in general the less the compression the better the quality.
RAW+B simply stores each of your pictures as a RAW file and a BASIC JPEG file.
Having said all that, you should use only RAW or FINE settings. You didn't buy a SLR only to throw away picture quality, did you?
