    RAW is not a standard image file like JPEG, GIFF, TIFF ect. It's basically the data, directly from the camera's image sensor. It does have an embedded jpeg image, which is probably what you were seeing...I'm not sure why you can't see it bigger.

    There are several programs which can be used to view RAW files...and a few that can be used to open & convert the RAW files into a standard image file. Your camera will have come with software for this.
