I just downloaded and installed DNG v2.4 on a Windows 2000 machine. I converted a Canon RAW file from a D60. The conversion seemed to go fine, except for three problems.
1. The CRW image size was 3072x2048. The DNG image size is only 1024x683!
2. The EXIF data associated with the DNG file only includes half of the information in the original CRW file. It's missing, for example, subject distance, white-balance, saturation, etc.
3. Photoshop 8.0 cannot open the DNG file. I get the error message "Could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document."
I've tried changing the PREFERENCES in DNG Converter to both COMPRESSED and not COMPRESSED: but it makes no difference. Any ideas?
