This answer was rated:

I have been on a trip with a new Nikon D7100 and had set my camera to shoot raw and a basic jpeg. When I tried to open a raw file in Elements 10 a flag comes up to say 'Cannot open DSC0001.NEF because it is the wrong sort of file. This applies to all my raw images. I went back to my camera and could see in shooting menu under 'NEF (RAW) recording' and then under 'type' the 'lossless compressed was turned on. Firstly the most important thing is how can I get Elements 10 to be able to read all my NEF files? Secondly should I turn the camera 'type' onto 'NEF (RAW) 14 bit? Many thanks. Barbara
