I guess I'm not understanding what you are showing me.

It boots up to the desktop? Or do you power it on and go to the Disk Utility? Instead of "Restore", did you try "Repair"?

Try Disk Utility
Start from your Mac OS X Install disc: Insert the installation disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
Click the First Aid tab.
Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.
Select your Mac OS X volume.
Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk.

You tend to do this frequently. Really, we don't need to see five screencaps of a dead Mac.

Getting back on topic, you may want to consider backing up your RAW files as soon as you take them off your card. I keep two sets of RAW images, each on separate RAID boxes. I use a sync program that automatically copies the images to both locations. Eats up a lot of space but I never have to worry about losing my images.

That's what I expect. The $1600 is about what they're going for now when actually sold for a realistic price. I'm not buying any more gear until all of this shakes out.

Once the D600 is available the prices will be $1000-$1200.

Sold my D700 locally for $1700. Yes, the price WILL come down a lot once D600 become available. You better off sell it now and buy it back a couple months later :lol:

Yes, well, see, that is the trouble, I have no clue to what I am seeing, let alone, doing! That is why it's time to pay Apple the warranty call! lol Thanks for the support, I will see if it will help me, but I am "green thumbed" to mostly everything :)

I really can't stand that guy. A 24-85 FX lens would be great for a guy like me that doesn't want to travel with a bunch of lenses. And since it's travel photography (ie. vacation), I'm most likely going to be shooting f/5.6-11 anyhow.

Anyways, I can't believe that Nikon can actually price this at $1500 for a D600. If so, it proves what I've long suspected - that FX sensors don't cost that much as they would have us to believe. But I guess I would have to see the sensor rating and see if it beats the D700, which I'm sure, after 4 years, it will.

Don't mind the hair, but when he presents, he many times forgets what he's saying or can't remember the names of things. It's annoying.

This is the complain-about-other-people's-posts thread. Sometimes, as a diversion, Nikon gear is discussed as well. ;)

After reading a bit more, the D700 still has the better AF system (after all, it's the D3's system) than the D600.

The AF advantage of D700 will be very slim since it's from 2008 while D600 is using 2012 electronics and algorithm. I see quite a boost at AF speed going to D800, I expect the tech will filter down to D600 even it's a "lesser" AF module
