After fiddling with this for a while myself and trying several different converters I've found one common problem, Donny. And this is most important! As we're all using a hack to produce these images you have to remember--our cameras--in reality don't produce these images. So when we try to use a converter generally many of them also can't see RAW images produced by our cams because they're not supposed to. Its not "on their list"--so most OEM softwares won't access them. It would seem these programs are very camera specific as all RAW files are not the same.I've found that the UFRaw plugin with Gimp2 opens them. Try converting them to DNGs, that might help with other programs. Look in the other threads. There's one I started a few weeks back that shows my workflow and that seems to work.
donny, you can access RAW files only after you switch your camera off and then on.
A cheap, USB multi-card reader will eliminate this problem. Just drag and drop the files from the drive your card is in to a folder you created in windows explorer and you're all set. I've seen the light and have stopped connecting my camera to the computer altogether.Drano
In cases where it doesn't show my raw files i'll have to take the memory card out, pop it into my card reader, and take them off that way. It's just a hassle having to do that every single time and i'm paranoid about wearing the battery cover out.
I also have the same problem. I also have a Canon A570IS with 1.01A firmware and have tried both the Fingalo and Allbest CHDK builds with default raw settings. The .crw raw files seem to be invalid. (I have Photoshop CS3 with latest RAW updates, Lightroom, and Zoombrowser) None of them read the A570IS .crw from CHDK firmware (says invalid file type)...I think these files are not valid (corrupt) and don't work on the A570IS with CHDK firmware. Also tried DNG4PS-2 converter and it said the raw file is invalid.
