RAW (RW2) end of file issue (LX100)

#1 Post by moxxeh »

Hi, one of my memory cards went bad whilst on holiday, and I can't successfully retrieve the files from it:

the small JPG thumbnails are fine, but the .rw2 files have End Of File issues (on a mac, the preview of the file is all pic and jumbled, photoshop etc absolutely won't read them)

The camera is a Panasonic DMC-LX100 (Euro version):

It looks like the files are there, just testdisk and photorec don't know how to get the full file?

Can you help please?

Run PhotoRec, in FileOpts, disable everything, only enable rw2, start a recovery. Are the recovered files ok ?
Please send me some original unmodified files (not files recovered by PhotoRec).
