I just upgraded to 4.5 from the last version and tried to open one and then any of my previous ingested contact sheets without any luck. Is there something that I need to do, to convert all my existing files to be recognized by this newer version?

Trisha,

No, there is no conversion needed.  What kind of images are you browsing?  What OS are you running?

Nikon Camera raw images on a PC based computer (XP professional). These files were downloaded on the previous version of Photo Mechanic and opened/viewed. My hard drive shows is trying to access the files but I continue to get a blank white screen.

I have never heard of this issue.  I suggest calling the support folks at 503-531-8430 on Monday morning.  Hopefully they can get to the bottom of it.

Which Nikon camera?  Have the files been run through any other software?

I suspect that the fix I just made for the Leica DNG files is also going to fix the early model Nikon NEF files that didn't have any JPEG preview.

I'll arrange for Kirk to get you a beta to test.
