Hello all -

Found lots about NEF files here, but not what I'm looking for...or at least hasn't been able to help.


Running 10.6.8 and Aperture 2.14 (on a Mac Pro - lots of free drive space, 4GB memory)


When I try to look at NEF files, it says "Loading" for a (long long) while (I can see the thumbnail while it does this) and then says "Unsupported Image Format"


I have:

- rebuilt my Aperture Library

- deleted my file and rebooted.


Do I need Aperture 3 to see this? I have seen an update for RAW Compatibility, but it refers only to Aperture 3, not 2.x.x



Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Time Capsule
