Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

Message: Cant read file header.Unknown file format/file not found

\015 I have downloaded a number of photographs onto the computer but when trying to open them, I keep getting the above message. Fortunately this doesn't apply to all the photos! I have tried using different software to open them i.e. Photoshop and Irfanview but still no luck. One photograph shows some picture and then the bottom half of the photo is just a block of grey? Can anyone help?\015

Answers :

First check to see what the settings are set on how the files are saved. If they are set to RAW mode you won't be able to open them. Set the camera to jpg mode. Then you will be able to open them. The RAW mode is an advanced mode that requires an advanced operator to utilize all of the fuctions.

Hi! I used The perfect touch option on a picture and deleted the original version. Since the new verison has an .KDF extension I can't see it on my computer and it's practically unuseable :((.

Also tried just to change .kdf extension to .jpg on my compouter, but just got the same message : Can't read file tipe... Read the Extended gude book, but there's nothing useful...
