    Hello.


    I just bought a Nikon Z6 II and found that Windows 10 does not see the NEF raw files. It sees the JPG files just fine. Those files are useless to me.


    Is there a fix for this? Right now my new $2,600 paper weight.


    Please help!


    Thank you,

    Paul Livingston

  2. Failure opening Nikon Z6 NEF photos

    While I don't have the same issue with my Z6 NEF files, I'm having some problems. Thumbnails of any raw photos from my Nikon Z6 look as expected, but as soon as I open a file in the Photos App, the photo appears nearly colorless and nothing like the thumbnail...or
    even like the neutral NEF file should look.

    And this only happens with NEF files from the Nikon Z6, and not with NEF files from my Nikon D750.

    Hmm...

    Did not fix the problem. Problem is not with all NEF files, but only the ones from the Nikon Z6.

    Failure opening Nikon Z6 NEF photos

    The Z6 NEF files open normally with Photo Viewer but not with the Photos app, which I like to use for some editing. The Nikon ViewNX 2 software will open and display these files, but "Adjustments" does not function. The newer ViewNX-i appears to be fully
    functional for all Nikon files.
