.dsc File Extension

Developer: Nikon
File type: Nikon Disk Identification File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dsc. Files with the file extension .dsc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dsc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dsc file?

The DSC file extension is used for a Nikon Disk Identification file developed by Nikon. It is basically composed of information about groups of photos taken using a digital Nikon Camera. These photos were saved via a memory card together with other image files. DSC file is solely used by Nikon in its image saving file and can only be accessed through Nikon View NX. View NX is an image software application that allows the user of a Nikon Digital Camera to browse and edit an image or a movie by the use of a computer. This software usually is supported by all Nikon DSLR cameras and USB supported COOLPIX cameras. These cameras save images using DSC extension but there are images saved by other camera devices using .JPEG file extensions. JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group. It is a common format used for saving a digital image. Also known as a compressed image format, the file size is greatly reduced via the JPEG compression algorithm.

how to open a .dsc file?

Launch a .dsc file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .dsc file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .dsc files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .dsc file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .dsc file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dsc files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dsc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
