    Have you been able to view RAW images on your computer before? I suspect that this is simply a case of your computer not having a program assigned to view RAW images; if you're using PSP, of CS, then right-click on an image, and select 'Open with' and the scroll down to your favorite image editing application. There is also a RAW codec you can get from the MS website which will allow you to view them in the Windows Image and Fax Viewer.

    Raw files are designed by the camera manufacturer. At some point, editing programs will include the necessary information for reading the raw files. I'm sure your camera came with a software program for editing and it will let you see your raw files. The codec is for Windows Vista only, I believe.

    What camera and what computer operating system are you using?
