mbird Posted December 28, 2008 Share Posted December 28, 2008 Hi All I have been having a problem over the past few weeks when I come to import RAW files. It doesn't matter whether I use Windows picture import wizard to copy the files to my hard drive, or do it direct from Lightroom, but a percentage of the pictures end up with corruption. If you look at the pictures in Lightroom along the filmstrip, they all appear okay to start with, but then at random seem to get bright coloured blocks at the bottom (usually the bottom right corner). Occasionally the whole photo turns yellow and magenta. I thought originally this was Lightroom, as when I viewed the photo thumnails in windows explorer they seemed ok. However, when opening one of the affected files to view full size, it seems to be okay until windows has finished rendering it and then gets corrupted. I have checked the files in the memory card, and they are fine as if I delete the dodgy files from the hard drive and then re-import them they are ususally okay. Has anyone had any experience of this? It seems the corruption is occuring at the time of transfer from card to hard drive, so next time I am going to plug in the cameras USB cable rather that using my card reader.
