Having trouble downloading my first attempt at RAW photography. I have Windows 7 with “Windows Live Photography Gallery” on a Dell laptop. After inserting the camera’s memory chip in my laptop to transfer a set of 8 test photos taken with a Nikon D5200 (4 jpeg. and 4 raw), I saw the four jpeg. images but then saw 4 identical default system images (mountains and seashore) where the raw images should have been. After clicking the download button, I got the message “some photos…can’t be displayed…” Then I was prompted to download the FREE Microsoft Camera Codec Pack (6.3.9721.0). I got to the download page and was instructed to click on the *Download* button --but there was none. I couldn’t download it. Microsoft Tech service referred me to Dell, which wants me to pay a technician for the answer. Nuts to that. Can anyone help me download this software, so I can see my RAW photos and begin adjusting exposures in Windows Live Photography Gallery? Or do I need different software --and how much more complicated does this get?
