Latest version of Bridge CC doesn't show RAW (Nikon .NEF) thumbnails - only the NEF icon can be seen. No problem with previous version of Bridge, it happened just after the update!
Here are two things to try, if the first one doesn't work, than try the 2nd (and might be a good idea to do both as a maintenance option).
1st: go to your Preference and tap on Cache Management and select Purge cache:
2nd Reset your Bridge's Preferences:
When launching Bridge, Command-Option (Mac)/Control-Alt (Win) + Shift to choose “Reset Preferences”, Purge Entire Thumbnail Cache,” and/or Reset Standard Workspaces.”
Let us know how it works out.
Hi, found this thread as I was also having issues. Solved my problem by going to the Camera Raw Preferences in the dropdown from Adobe Bridge. and then Raw Defaults - Master - (changed this to Adobe default)
Hope this helps
I have also been having this problem with NEF's downloaded from my Nikon Z5. In additon, I also noticed that I can not convert NEF files to DNG while downloading. I get an error message:
NEF's from my Nikon D750 work properly with Photo Downloader, as do raw files from my Pentax X-70. When I connect my Z5 directly to my PC via USB cable, image thumbnails appear as they should, but I still cannot convert NEF's to DNG.
I checked these settings and discovered that "Adobe Default" was already set in Camera Raw Preferences > Raw Defaults.
So now what? I still can not get NEF image thumbnails, nor can I convert NEF files to DNG during the download process with Bridge Photo Downloader.
Hi, thanks a lot. Meanwhile, and after a 2h-chat with Adobe support, the problem has been solved: We've installed Bridge again and after that it worked!
