Yes i set RAW metadata writing option.

In fact, I succeed to write metadata on my NEF file, but, it only works if  
I don't enable the "update file timestamp when metadata are saved".

I don't understand why...

Here are my components informations

I can test the add and remove tag works perfectly now, but nothing was  
wrote if I turn on the file timestamp update option.

How can I determine from what come this comportement ?
