PhotoRec 6.14 cannot see .NEF files

#1 Postby Lumigenic » 31 Mar 2012, 16:26

Hello. Let me first thank you for making this wonderful program freely available!

I downloaded PhotoRec 6.14 in order to recover files from a 16GF compact Flash card I accidentally reformatted. Several utilities can "see" the deleted files. The card was used to store photos in a Nikon D300 shot in "Raw" format. Nikon uses the .NEF file type. The documentation includes this file type as recoverable. But PhotoRec 6.14 will not recover .NEF files for me, it does note even include .NEF in the list when the program is running.

When I choose "File Opt" and scroll through the list of file it will locate, "nef" is NOT on the list!

I am working on an Intel MacBook Pro running OS X 10.6.8 Is there a way to get my .NEF files back?

TIA!

I am having the same problems with Canon RAWS as well with .CR2 file extensions ): It's listed as compatible but it's not available as an option in 6.14. I'm going to try 6.13 just to see if a stable version supports it.
