Two Pilots forum / Digital photo software / NEFs modified by Exif Pilot don't work with NX2

If you use Exif Pilot to change the date a NEF file was created, the resulting NEF file cannot be opened by Nikon's ViewNX or NX2. It can, however, be opened by PhotoShop PS3.

Date changes made to a NEF by the freeware products exiftool and ExifToolGUI do not cause any problem with ViewNX or NX2. If you open the NEF that was modified by Exif Pilot with exiftool and ExifToolGUI, it provides the following on line 2 of the All view: WARNING Unknown format (nnnnn) for NikonScan tag 0xnnnn [nnnn varies with the file], It also shows that the NEF contains a second DateTimeOriginal field that does not get changed by Exif Pilot -- this second DateTimeOriginal field is either not shown or deleted by exiftool after a date modification (I haven't bothered to look into what it does with duplicate tags).

While this may be a Nikon problem, it means that Exif Pilot is not usable for modifying NEFs if you use the Nikon editing software. This means I will have to use the freeware product exiftool on my NEFs.

I have a similar problem. Modifying the "User Comment" field results in Capture NX2 and View NX2 crashes regardless of batch or individual file changes. Restoring the files from a backup made prior to ExifPilot fixes the NX2 issues, however my changes are lost.

Please help
