No, the data doesn't have to be there. Cwcheat Psp 5.50 Gen D3. That is in fact the likely problem. The SD card failed, garbled some bits, and now programs that understand NEF files can't make any sense of them. Try using one of those TIF diagnostic programs that shows you every tag in the file. If you're really lucky the image data is intact and the rest can be reconstructed.
Fix NEF File & Get Rid of NEF Errors Are you getting errors while accessing Nikon photos? How to restore corrupted NEF files? Is there any software to fix NEF files? Nikon camera uses NEF file format to store raw data capture by camera image sensor. Apart from data it also store details about camera settings, lens types used in shooting etc. These files contain uncompressed or minimally processed data. You further convert these data or raw files to other formats like JPEG, JPG or TIFF etc.
NEF files have various advantages over compressed data formats like it prevents in-camera processing of various image properties. The images produced by it having greater tonal range in comparison to compressed formats. Hence Nikon camera uses NEF files to store images.
But sometimes these NEF files get corrupted and you encounter error messages when you try to access the photos. Unless you fix NEF files you are unable to access the photos. Generally NEF files get corrupted when you reuse the camera after it turned off abruptly, system crashes when NEF files are opened in memory. The major cause behind the corruption of NEF files are as follows: • Corruption of file system • Operating system crash • Virus attack • Malfunctioning of hardware • Software related errors • Corruption of memory card • Human errors Nikon camera uses unique format i.e. NEF files so any types of corruption in such file format are not handled by common available software. Hence special software is designed to fix NEF files.

• • Fix Corrupted Nikon NEF Images Downloading NEF images from newer Nikon cameras with Nikon Transfer 1 or older versions of ViewNX 2 (and probably Capture NX 2) may result in corrupted NEF images that can no longer be opened. This utility repairs these corrupted NEF images for the D4, Df, D600, D610, D750, D800, D800E, D810, D850, D3200, D5200, D5300, D5500, D7100 and D7200. It DOES NOT REPAIR images corrupted by memory card problems, disk errors, or other software. [ Nikon NX-D has also been known to corrupt images (possibly related to changing the file byte ordering!), but these problems are not fixed by this utility.] Warning!
If you modify the corrupted images with any other software before fixing them with this utility, then the raw image data may be permanently lost! (This may happen for instance if you use View NX2 to geotag the images after downloading.) Follow the instructions below for running this utility on or systems. If you have any questions or comments. [Note that Nikon doesn't learn from their mistakes, and a similar problem happened 2 years earlier with an older version of Nikon Transfer and the D5000 (), and the new Nikon NX-D software has other corruption issues.
The moral is: Don't use Nikon Transfer or any other utility that modifies the file to download your precious images!] It is very sad that this Nikon software bug penalizes only loyal Nikon owners (since it affects only people who had an older copy of the Nikon software from a previous camera), yet Nikon customer support provides no help other than suggesting that you contact your memory card manufacturer to see if the original images can be restored. Windows Users • Download and open ', then move the 'fix_corrupted_nef.exe' application onto your hard disk. • Drag and drop the corrupted NEF files and/or folders onto the 'fix_corrupted_nef.exe' application. • A command window should open and prompt with this message: 'Bit depth of compressed images (12 or 14) ?' Type either '12' or '14', then press RETURN. If you don't know the bit depth of your compressed NEF images, or if you have mixed 12 and 14-bit compressed images, or if you have only uncompressed NEF images, just type '14' (or simply press RETURN).
