    I suspect you are using window picture and fax viewer, or photo gallery, these programm unable to view raw format unless you download plugin for viewing raw file, why don't use use viewNX2 than come with your camera?

    It seems your brother installed Nero and it reassigned files with extension .NEF to Nero. You could reverse this by doing right-click on such image file, then select 'Properties' and change the "Open with.." setting to point to Image viewer. That's the default in Windows. But I second catchlights' suggestion of installing ViewNX2. Reason: Windows Image viewer is 1) a 'colour-blind' program that ignores embedded colur profiles; 2) only shows the embedded jpg file, but not the content of the RAW file.
    If you want to work with RAW then read up in Digital Darkroom about the basic workflow and the tools you need. Otherwise stick to JPG files.
