Having gone over a year without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to get a newer version of ACR solved the problem.

SOURCE: May I use a Soligor 24D Flash on my new Nikon D40X Digital Camera

You can purchase an off-camera flash sync adaptor at any good camera store, complete with extension cable.   The should work fine.

SOURCE: Nikon D40X inbuilt flash

I just bought a Nikon D40X last week. I just realized that the built-in flash never popped up. So I tested in auto mode in a dark room and confirmed that the flash does not work. (Still does not work after a reset) I am going to call Nikon and maybe I might exchange it for a different camera.

SOURCE: Suddenly unable to transfer photos into Nikon Picture Perfect

How are you transferring the photos? Are you using a cable, or a card reader? If you are using a cable then most likely the cable went bad. I have a D-1 and a D-2, and I never use the firewire cable. I put the CF cards into a card reader. If you are not using a card reader then try that. You can get a decent one from E-Film or from most any computer store.

One more step to try, did you format the card in the camera when you first loaded the card in? On my cameras you need to format that card to have them work with the camera.

Slow down your shooting. The "R11" indicates that you can take 11 more images before the buffer is full and the camera will stop functioning until the images are moved to the memory card.
Select a smaller file size. Nikon cameras allow you to select from several sizes of JPEG as well as a RAW and a RAW + JPEG file. These files vary in size. If you select a smaller file size, the buffer will take longer to fill, allowing you to shoot longerTurn off long exposure noise reduction. This function causes the camera to expose twice for every image, and this can fill up the buffer quickly as those images are processed and written to the card.
  • Step 3 Select a smaller file size. Nikon cameras allow you to select from several sizes of JPEG as well as a RAW and a RAW + JPEG file. These files vary in size. If you select a smaller file size, the buffer will take longer to fill, allowing you to shoot longer.

    Message: Cant read file header.Unknown file format/file not found


    First check to see what the settings are set on how the files are saved. If they are set to RAW mode you won't be able to open them. Set the camera to jpg mode. Then you will be able to open them. The RAW mode is an advanced mode that requires an advanced operator to utilize all of the fuctions.

    Nikon NEF files no longer open in cs2


    hi dear

    The Nikon NEF Plug-in for Photoshop

    (In Windows, search "plug" to find "P2_NEFPlugin_En.pdf" in the NikonPictureProjectReferenceManual folder. You should have copied this manual to your HD from your PictureProject CD when you installed PictureProject.)

    D40x NEF Photoshop Plugin -

    file: "Nikon NEF Plugin LE.8bi"

    Search Windows for "*.8bi"

    These two plugins can be found at C:\Program Files\Nikon\PictureProject

    Follow these instructions for (taken from the above reference manual)

  • **Note: before you uninstall PictureProject back up all of you NEF files.

    "Installing the Nikon NEF Plug-in

    Two Photoshop plug-ins are included with PictureProject: a Nikon NEF Plugin LE plug-in for viewing RAW images, and a Nikon YCC TIFF plug-in for viewing YCbCr-TIFF images (in Windows, these fi les have the extension “*.8bi”). These plug-ins can be used with Adobe Photoshop Elements version 2.0 or later and with Adobe Photoshop version 6.0 or later (Windows) or 7.0 or later (Macintosh). Both plug-ins are copied to the PictureProject application folder when PictureProject is installed (in the Macintosh version, the plug-ins are copied
    to the “File formats” folder in the PictureProject application folder). If a copy of Photoshop is detected at installation, the plug-ins will also be copied to the Photoshop plug-ins folder. Users who install Photoshop after installing PictureProject should fi rst uninstall PictureProject, and then reinstall PictureProject when installation of Photoshop is complete."

    After you open the RAW NEF picture file in Photoshop save it in lossless .psd format for further editing.

    How can I use the Adobe Camera Raw plugin after installing Nikon Software?


    During the installation of Nikon View or Picture Project, your system is checked for an installed copy of Adobe Photoshop. If a copy with the minimum version is found, Nikon View will install file format filters which will allow Photoshop to open a NEF/RAW file directly (there are other plugins for YCBCR TIFF format from supported cameras). If you have the Adobe Photoshop "Camera Raw" software installed (optional in Photoshop version 7, included in Photoshop version CS) the Nikon file filters will open the file. If you prefer to continue using the Adobe software, find and remove the following plugins: Nikon NEF Plugin (Nikon View) Nikon NEF Plugin LE (Picture Project) After a restart of Adobe Photoshop, the Adobe Photoshop "Camera Raw" plugin will handle the opening of Nikon NEF/RAW format files. Please note that there was an update for Adobe Camera Raw plugin for support of D70 and Coolpix 8700 RAW files, if you encounter difficulty opening raw files from any Nikon product after removal of the Nikon Plugins, please visit the Adobe support site to obtain the appropriate update for the Adobe Camera Raw plugin.
