Hello, As im a complete newbie im looking for help. At first I was shooting in .JPG format on my D300, but now i want to progress into RAW format (.NEF?) as im starting to edit my photos more and more in Adobe Lightroom V2.4. For some reason when I try to import .NEF files into Lightroom it does not allow me to. Am i doing something wrong? At the moment I use a card reader, then I use Nikon software to import the images onto my hard drive. From these imported files im trying to import them into Lightroom. Im not sure if this would make a difference? Also, what is the best way to back up images onto my external... am i better off backing up my original files from my SD card direct to my external or is there a better way? Thanks in advance, sorry if this is a repost but i searched existing threads and could not find anything.
