DNG's created with Adobe Lightroom 4 don't open

Postby bob1650 on Fri Mar 09, 2012 8:57 pm

DNG files created with Adobe Lightroom version 4 (that was released this week) do not open in Windows Photo Viewer. I tried reinstalling the latest version of the FPV Codec, but with no result. Any help someone?

That's just Adobe playing with its proprietary file format and adding undocumented features for their own private use. Stay away from the new options (lossy and fast load) if you want compatibility with existing software. Things may get better in the coming months, if and when they document the new format variants.

Thank you for your prompt reply. Removing the "Embed fast load data" option in Lightroom 4 did the trick indeed. :D
