Nikon D300 Diary
Nikon offered to loan us a D300 on the condition we spend 10 hours with them to learn how to use it. We remember no such clause in Mephistopheles' deal with Faust, so we jumped at the chance. Read our report to see what the devil happened...

Hi Mike, I havent read right thru your report (yet!) but mebbe you can unravel a minor mystery for me ..even with the filesizes set relatively small on my new d300 (under say 2mb) when I try to download thru my card reader to do file management as usual with MS Photo Editor, I get an error message saying 'Cant open, Filesize too large', yet much larger files from my other cameras will open OK. Do you know if there is some embedded setting (that I have changed yet) on the 300 which would cause this? Thanks, Bruce...

Sounds more like MS pe is having problems not the d300 or anything to do with the images. Try using something that isn't as buggy...

No, Bruce, there's no default image size setting that would cause this error that I can think of (and I've thought of all of them <g>. I'd reformat the card in the camera, shoot a JPEG only at Large size with Fine compression and try it again. If you get the same error, see if you can reproduce it using a different camera (if you happen to have one), reformatting in the camera. If it's a new (and large) card, the card reader itself may not be able to handle the card (particularly if it's over 2-GB). The Microsoft Photo Editor troubleshooting page for this issue is not very helpful but here's the link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/232496..

I just gave that a try..f'matt'd card & re-shot at L/F but no-go..so put the same card in old-faithful Minolta A2 at L/F, & it read/opened OK.then tried same with other card that normally lives in the A2, & the same error-thing happened again with it in the d300. I'll try reloading the MS P/E, & failing that go try Picasa 2 or somesuch small file manager .. Thanks anyway, BrooC...

Next, I re-formatted the card again & took some shots in the A2, then stuck it in the d300 & took some more ..P/E will open the shots from the A2, but not from the d300 (they write to different folders on the card, so ID is easy). An odd thing is that P/E will show thumbnails (ie graphics, not icon) for ALL the files, but will only properly 'open' the ones from the older camera. this tends to make me think that the issue is something to do with 'something' in the way the d300 writes to jpg...but?..

..I tried loading Windows Picture & Fax as default viewer, & it opens the pics fairly fast ..as also does MS Paint, but faster ... & Picture Viewer too (slower opening)..tho as soon as I 'ask them' to open Photo Editor up pops the 'File Too Large' error message.. grrrr....

I don't know how many ways you want that program to tell you that it's buggy...
