i have also a problem with reading the nef files, not in camera but after transfer from sd to computer and also from cf to computer. Old nef files still on sd card can be read but all nef files that I make now cannot be read.
I have reset the camera, I have downloaded and installed the latest firmware for D800 (1.01) but still the NEF files are showing as corrupt.
This only happened after 2300 shots and before that time I didn't have problems at all.
Is there a solution for this already, I cannot find a definite solution in this post to this problem. Thanks in advance. Frank.

There is a new utility available that will fix these corrupted NEF images:
I have been having the exact same problem the last few weeks when transferring NEF files from my Nikon D800. I don't use any transfer program just simple copy/paste and a few files every time is corrupted.
Then I edit in Lightroom 4.2
Today I fortunately still had them on my SD card and tried to transfer the same two files again and re-import into LR and they were fine?!?!?
So save them on the SD card until you know they work for sure. Its a drag, but for now it works for me and I have my NEF file uncorrupted
Don’t worry!!! The NEF raw files which are lost during transfer process can be easily recovered only if they are not corrupted. Even I was under the same problem couple of day’s back where I lost some of my precious raw photos while transferring it to computer. Then I got to know about photo recovery software and I used it. This utility helped me to recover Nikon RAW files. So it can also be helpful in your case only if the files are lost not corrupted. Following are the details which can be useful
