was because the raw format on my Nikon is proprietary and libraw hasn't been updated
to support the format. The same issue was present with the raw interface in
Photoshop/Photoshop Elements, it had to be updated to support the camera before it could
manipulate the files in the NEF format that the D3100 takes.
In digikam, if you go to "Help--->Supported Raw Cameras" you'll see
your camera is listed.

files when they are on a hard disk.
And that appears to be the same for digikam. Once you move the files to the system's
disk you can view and work with them.
This might be because the camera is being
accessed in PTP mode. I
thought I saw in one of the links that Poma supplied that PTP access
doesn't allow the contents of the images to be modified.
