Foreward: I am new to the game of DSLR and associated software programs which, therefore may cause me to ask very simple questions. Your patients is very much appreciated.
I took some Christmas day pics with the XTi that Santa so graciously left. I downloaded both the raw and jpg files onto the hard drive in one folder using photoshop elements 5.0 with the latest Camera Raw 3.6 installed.
My problem arises when I open DPP and choose the folder containing both the raw and jpg files. I get "DPPViewer.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close....". I cannot do anything else but close the program. I then seperated the cr2 and jpg files to different folders. Opening the folder containing the cr2 files is no problem and the pics open in the viewer. When I open the folder containing the jpg files, I get the DPPViewer.exe error again.
It seems that DPP does not want to open jpg files but cr2 files are OK. The funny thing is that DPP will open all of my jpg files taken from and old Olympus P&S camera. I took more pics again in both raw and jpg and tried the whole scenario again. It does the same thing. I reinstalled DPP and made sure I have the lastest version.
Can anyone shed any light as to why DPP will not open jpg files taken with the XTi?
Thanks for ya'lls time and patience.
