Why Panasonic rw2 is not recovered? Perhaps format change?

#1 Postby nordiclander » 19 Jun 2012, 08:54

Panasonic raw extension rw2 format is listed as supported. But still no files found from 16GB SD card. Windows 7 64 bit running 32 bit Photorec 6.13.
When Jpegs and mov files were found successfully.
I'm a feeling that supported rw2 may have been changed and not supported any more?
Can anyone confirm?

The card was just formated in camera prior to recovery attempt (no new pictures, because Windows application imported only jpegs leaving raw to SD card without noticing it, which I found out 10 minutes later :-()

Panasonic micro 43 Lumix camera series raw image file extension is RW2. The camera I have is 2011 model Panasonic Lumix G3.
Just for testing purpose I checked Olypmus raw format orf which recovered normally as expected.
Any ideas? Thanks!

Great work - long live the author!
I downloaded 6.14 beta and it recovered also rw2 files.

Yes, we've had acouple of cases and TestDisk 6.14-32bit helped.
Thanks for your feedback. :)
I'll set your topic as solved.
