Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

Took extraordinary pictures with nikon d40 but can't edit them

\015 I went out for a hike earlier today taking many pictures. Had my D40 set to :\015\012Nikon D402009/04/29 13:01:20.2Compressed RAW (12-bit)Image Size: Large (3008 x 2000)ColorLens: 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 GFocal Length: 55mmDigital Vari-Program: Auto (Flash Off)Metering Mode: Multi-Pattern1/500 sec - F/11Exposure Comp.: 0 EVSensitivity: ISO 200Optimize Image: White Balance: AutoAF Mode: AF-AFlash Sync Mode: Flash Mode: Auto Flash Comp: Color Mode: Mode IIIa (sRGB)Tone Comp.: AutoHue Adjustment: 0\302\260Saturation: AutoSharpening: AutoImage Comment: Long Exposure NR: OffVR Control: OffHigh ISO NR: Off\015\012\015\012with the shutter on continuous.\015\012\015\012Now I got back and went to try to edit these pictures in several editing suites, Photoshop, PictureProject and others. In Photoshop the pictures don't even load; throws an "Could not open due to disk error" error. In PictureProject they open but any editing options are greyed out. In Windows Photo Gallery they open and show fine for a second or 2 then it's like someone slid the red hue slider to max setting.\015\012\015\012I'm at my wits end because these are some of the best pictures I've taken and probably won't be able to recreate the conditions they were taken in. \015\012\015\012So here is my questions: has anyone experienced this? is there a way to repair the damaged files? have i done something wrong so i can avoid this problem in the future?\015\012\015\012thanks for the replies in advance\015

Answers :

You have your camera set to RAW format. It is not a compressed file, it is a full size file. Opening this in editing programs will either crash your computer or will refuse to open because of the size of the file. They are not damaged but your computer cannot handle the files. You should take them to a photo shop and have them put the files on a cd and consult your manual to change your camera to JPEG format.
