My old school laptop died on me the other day, I realised that I was in need of an upgrade and bought myself a HP Compaq. Now that I have finally installed Lightroom and CS5 which I need for studies I realised that DPP isn't showing my RAW files as thumbnails as it used to do?

Is this because it isn't updated or do I have to activate the feature somewhere?

Can someone help me out here?

Sure -- go to your "normal" Canon site and navigate to a recent camera and you should see a tab or link to Software/Drivers. Click that and choose your OS, and you should get a page featuring the latest versions of DPP and the other apps (EOS Utilities, ZoomBrowser, etc). You can download and install from there -- you need to do each app individually.

I'd advise you to also download the Manuals -- they'll be in a Manuals/Brocure section of their own.

Enter your OS and download DPP 3.9

Thanks! You guys are lifesavers! I am leaving to my college tomorrow so I really needed it to work. Got a weekend seminar. Now I just have to decide what lens to bring...

Heh! Well, you have a decent set of lenses, but as to picking one...maybe the 17-40? Nice and mid-range for the 50D, nice and wide on the 5D (are you going to bring both bodies?).

Im not sure if you know this but if you just download a copy of DPP, and haven't had a previous version installed on this laptop you need to add an entry in the Registry.
If you still have your original DPP you could install that first then download the new version, and that will install without any problems.

You can google for the hack, its widely available.

Just a thought.

Easier yet, if you do have a CD just put in the original disk and then do the updates and they will recognize the disk and go ahead with the update.

But, the OP did say that he had installed from his disk.

Unfortunately I can only fit one body. Will have to travel light.

As you say the 17-40 will probably go with the 5d and the 50mm 1.8 is so small that I will bring that aswell. Hmm, now I have to fit the laptop in the bag aswell. Damn.

Oh and Dave thanks but I had my DPP installed from the disc which came with the camera. I was just surprised to see that it wasn't reading my RAW files.


Hmm, update installed but there is still no thumbnails shown only the aperture icon. What am I doing wrong?

No problem. Thats a bit strange though, usually a new version of DPP comes out when they release a new camera. Maybe you installed the 5D version.

As long as it all works its all good.

Oh, and a great app for viewing thumbnails in windows Exploer is the free Fastpicture viewer codec. Even though its quite old it seem to work with all my recent Canon Raw files, from the S90/95 to my 60D.

Thanks downloading the app! And I actually used my 50d's install disc. Bought the 50d last april so that might explain why it wasn't up to date.

Hang on, there -- you are on a Mac, and DPP won't show the thumbnails, is that correct?

I'm not a Mac user so can give only zilch in expertise here...what happens if you doble-click a Raw file in DPP?

And, what happens if you right-click a Raw file in DPP? Does it show the Edit in Edit Window options?

Im using windows 7! DPP shows the pictures whilst in DPP but not when I am browsing, it used to show the images when I was browsing them in the folders without using DPP.


And now it seems to be working! Guess it just took a reboot!

Thanks for all the help!

Ah, OK -- you said it showed "only the Aperture icon" which of course led to mass OS confusion:)!

So, to clear things up, you may be able to get the icons to show by going back to the Canon site and installin the proper Codec for your camera from the Software page. You should know though that results have been iffy with Win7, in fact I don't thing the 5DC is supported at all, but you may get mileage with the 50D. Give it a try.

Honestly I never bother to go for thumbnail views with my Windows browser, since I'm used to just using either Lightroom or Bridge on my XP desktop or DPP/ZoomBrowser on my laptop. I just use my system browser for thing like zipping files for a Web upload or stuff like that.
