    Great stuff. Thanks for sorting it out for me before I move to Win7.

    Yea. Win7 is well worth the move. Fast and the best Windows OS so far.

    Just make sure your PC relatively new. No Athlon, Pentium 3 age old PCs due to lack of driver support.

    Fast Picture Viewer supports Canon too. I’m using that on both my 64-bit Win7.

    With RAW file sizes the way they are, and photoshop as complex as it is, who would want to work on a 32bit system anyway?! Nikon, you’re crazy. I love your cameras, but you’re crazy (also CaptureNX should be free… what a rip).

    Actually, Nikon’s new codec here works for me in Windows 7 x64

    Interesting. The codec still states it’s meant for 32-bit machines. Allow me to test it myself and see if it works well on my machine. Perhaps Win7 has better compatibility with 32-bit components. Will have to try it on a Vista machine too

    Try Microsoft
    Camera Codec Pack it comes in 32 and 64 Bit flavors; Microsoft download site. I am using it on my Win 7
    64B system. May not be the best but it does show thumbnails and some metadata
    in windows explorer and it is free.

    Thank you very much for this post! The Microsoft Codec Pack didn’t work for me. I think it’s because I have the Nikon D3100 and isn’t listed under the supported devices.

Let me know what you think...
