SD card not transfering raw files to computer completely

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?

    That is the method I use to transfer. I always remove the card and use an external reader. What I don't know is....are the files being corrupted by the external card reader or is this happening on board the camera as images are written to the card. So far it has only happenned to personal images but it sure would **** if i had to re-shoot for a client because of this.

Please remove the SD card from the camera. Connect the SD card to the computer using the external memory card reader and then transfer all the images in the computer or laptop. Then try to open all the images.

SOURCE: Nikon D200 incomplete RAW pictures

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.

SOURCE: A list and defintion of the file types raw b,

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?

I have a D3100 and all of my photos i need are in RAW+F what is the best program so i can add them to my computer?


You don't need any special program. If you've shot in RAW+F then you have two copies of every photograph on your memory card. One is RAW, the other is JPEG. Any photo cataloging/viewing program can handle JPEG photos.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo transfer program such as Nikon Transfer ( http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 ) or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).


If you want to deal with the RAW version, you can use Nikon ViewNX2 (see the Nikon Transfer link above).

Can i transfer pictures to my ipad


With a card reader, you can move all the photos from your digital camera to computer. After that, you can take advantage of iTunes to transfer photos to your iPad. This should be easy, but please note that the RAW files takes much more storage space than the JPEG files, so you'd better take a look at your storage space of your iPad before you import photos from camera to iPad.
transfer-pictures-ipad-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-2-0.jpg After importing photos from camera to iPad, you can view them with the Photos app on your iPad. The RAW files can also be read on your tablet, and supported RAW files are exactly the same as your Mac computer does.

How do I transfer Raw files from my D90 to my external hard drive for storage. My computer cannot see the files to transfer.


Can you elaborate more on your problem, you can transfer RAW files just like any other files on to an external drive. However you will not be able to preview the files as you can do in jpeg versions.

Canon eso 350/PowerBookG410.4.11


The proublem is likely to be driver based, depending on how old the laptop is and the os version ie lepard 9 (this is an example I am not sure which versions of the os the camera is compatible with) you may not be able to get the camera working properly.

Regardless of if the camera says its compatiple try the following.

Try doing the following 1: Try using a compact card reader to see if the files can be transfered onto the computer this way.

2: If the camera is not picking up the files there is a good chance your husband is shooting in raw mode, as such there canon may offer a raw program editor or a pluding / update for the os which would allow you view access or modify the files. Alternitiverly install a trial for the latest version of a package of Adobe Light room of Adobe photoshop, as these packeges have support for the raw files inbuild, and can be used to import photos onto computers.

Alternitverly if you can not find away of using the raw files buy a new compact flash card and shoot in jpg till the computer is back up and running.

Nikon SD card for D80 / D200/ D300


You should have no trouble using the SDHC cards. SDHC stands for Secure Digital High Capacity. The images should load directly from camera to computer, without the need for any additional hardware.

Canon 20d raw to pc


Have you ever been able to view the pictures on your pc?
Have you got a card reader that can view the card contents externaly from the camera?
I found the Canon software is quite as happy from a card reader as it is reading from the camera. (I have the next model up, 30D.)
Have you tried upgrading your software, or tried using a third party image program to read the raw files?
Over to you!

NEF Image will not open - Macintosh


RAW NEF images from Nikon cameras are proprietary formatted raw data directly from the cameras's sensor. If the images are improperly transferred to the computer they will not be able to be opened and will give an "Unsupported File Format" warning. Macintosh OS X has an "Image Capture" application (found in: Hard Drive/Applications/)that can be used to transfer images. If "Image Capture" is used NEF files will be corrupted and will not be able to be read. Only Nikon View, or manually dragging images from the mounted card, should be used to transfer NEF's. To disable "Image Capture": Double-click to open the hard drive and then the "Applications" folder Double-click "Image Capture" From the "Image Capture" menu choose "Preferences..." In the "When a camera is connected" pop-up choose "No Application" Close the Preferences window and Quit Image Capture After disabling Image Capture, it will not launch when the camera is connected and you can use Nikon View to properly transfer NEF images.
