Pentax K-1 DNG Raw Files in Windows 10

Used to shoot with raw files with Ricoh GX200 and Pentax K-30, works perfectly in Windows 7 and Windows 10. But for Pentax K-1, doesn’t seems to be the case by unable to view thumbnail picture in explorer windows and unable to directly display in Windows Photo Viewer. Although in can be accessed in Adobe Lightroom, still it slows down working progress such as file arrangement and organising.


As image above, no thumbnail, it will prompt a message says something like “the file can’t be display because the file is corrupted or too large.”

Solution for this is easy, refer to this thread at Pentax Forum: Cannot view raw files in Windows 10. Download Adobe DNG Codec 2.0 and install it will solve it all.
