Summary0000220: Can't add GPS data to TIF photo files
DescriptionI can add correct GPS data to all my DNG & JPG photo files, but no TIF photo files.
Actually, I can add it but I receive the error when "Save Changes" is started.
Additional InformationThe report tells me "Error:[minor] Maker notes could not be parsed - file path"

So, it says "minor" though to me it's not a minor issue as I can not get the GPS data in the files.

I'm attaching a file with a couple of screen shots for you.

P.S. It's a superb job you are doing with this. Great EXIF data modifier tool, especially GPS and location info tool. Thank you so much for your work on this app. It's development is going from good app to amazing app. I know you will solve this problem too. Other versions did not give this problem.
TagsNo tags attached.

There's an option "Ignore minor errors" in the settings dialog which can be set individually for each file type. It corresponds to the ExifTool option "-m" (see ExifTool documentation at I think this will solve your problem.

> Other versions did not give this problem.

I think it depends on the version of ExifTool which is used. Perhaps a newer version of ExifTool reports this error and an older version doesn't.

Thank you very much :-))

I don't close this problem right now. Perhaps you can try out setting "Ignore minor errors" and tell me the result first...

Thank you for your answer.
Enabling the "Igore minor errors" did help, but I'm guessing that the maker notes data is not added now. I really want and need the Maker notes data added to the metadata area of my photos.
Tested on the latest GeoSetter release v2.4.1 on Windows Vista. My camera model is Nikon D200.
I've also tested with replacing the ExifTool to the latest version 7.2 but I get same error.

I've sent Phil Harvey a mail explaining the error I'm getting.
