ViewNX2 - Getting a warning

Erik Christensen , Dec 11, 2011; 09:50 a.m.

I was using the Transfer function within the ViewNX2 for pictures taken with my D700, and after the transfer of 194 pictures had finished, I got the following warning:
"Some files could not have both XMP/IPTC preset and ICC color profile applied because they have image authentication information embedded."
I have during the last couple of years used the standalone version of Nikon Transfer and have used the transfer function in the ViewNX2 the last 2-3 months without any problems. Do I have a problem? Is it the camera/CF card or is it the ViewNX2 software? I have only had one photo which I could not open in ViewNX2, but I could open it in ACDsee 3 and 4.

Sounds like you have (via the camera's menu system) turned on the D700's Image Authentication feature. This is something you can turn off if you're not using the companion software.

Matt - Thank you very much. I have now turned it off. I never turned it on, but someone at the local Nikon Service Center has obviously 'played' a lot with the settings last month, when I had the sensor cleaned. I hope this is the last thing I find.

Yet another great argument for cleaning your own sensor! :-)
