    Adobe photoshop may not support all types of "RAW" formats, or requires the necessary plugins to work. Did you try using windows explorer to copy the files to HDD, then try to open using the software supplied with the camera?

    For Adobe Photoshop CS2, there is this Camera Raw plugin that support a few RAW formats. Maybe you can try to serach for adobe camera raw plugins for your specific adobe software.

    yeah, manually transfer the images from CF card to your harddisk first...

    u using canon? i think need to install the canon software then transfer if u are transferring using the camera itself.

    else, i know not all photoshop can read RAW files. I know PS CS2 can lah...

    doesnt matter where you read the files from (card reader - USB 2.0?? or HDD)....am using the Microsoft Raw Picture Viewer though for viewing...so far no problems for me

    or you may want to try IrfanView
    http://www.irfanview.com

    download plugins for viewing RAw files below

    thanks for all the reply.

    i am using a nikon D70. i find it rather strange why i can view the photos direct from the camera but when i tried transferring the photos(while card is still in the camera) my computer just can't detect any files or images.

    thx.

    Install all the software from Nikon with your camera first. It should auto update the RAW Plugins to your computer's shell.

    What is the brand of your CF card? I suspect your CF card is faulty or the images are corrupted.

    i using D70s, and my fren D70. we do use the cable to the camera to download the pictures last time, b4 we got a card reader.

    u got to have a software that can read RAW. both of us are using either the nikon capture or PS CS 2.

    if u cant get PS, then u should use the nikon capture. PS CS 2 also need to update depending on how new is the software.

    but, best is get a card reader.

    U need to have a software that can read RAW files. Try looking around for the Photoshop RAW Camera Plug-In. Else if u just want to view the files dwl the Nikon View. The Picture Project software bundled with ur D70s can also be used. Hope this helps.

    You need to install the Raw plugin from Adobe which supports the D70 camera.

    Go to the Adobe website and look for it. It will be called 'Raw Plugin' or something, then look at the supported cameras list and see which version the d70 is listed on.

    You do not need a card reader! But it will help with transfer speeds.

    Edit: Actually, sod trying to find it, it took me hours last time, Im using D70 too, if you pm me your email address I can email you the plugin and tell you how to install it?
