I have a problem showing .NEF files on windows 7 image viewer. First I can see all my .NEF files thumbnails correctly on windows explorer, but once I double click one of it, it show the photos correctly just for one second and it shrink leaving a black area like the screen shoot below leaving vertical line as shown in the second screen capture.
the weird behavior, that error occurred recently with my new transferred photos only ... while my old RAW files shows without any problem. I thought maybe the SD RAM is corrupted but Nikon Capture NX2 can read my RAW file and convert it to JPG format without any problem.
please note that I didn't updated to my Nikon Camera firmware and I didn't installed anything new over my Windows system.
This is the exact picture shows over windows image viewer jut for one second
this is the end result of viewing the photo
the problem maybe in the .NEF codec I Installed from a while from Microsoft called Microsoft Camera Codec Pack or maybe in the codec installed with Nikon capture NX2 or the codec that is provided by Nikon as a separated installer ...
my question is:
- why that error occurred with the new photo I have just transferred only?
- how to solve it?
- could you please guide me to get a better .NEF codec?
