When downloading photos from sdhc card elements gives an error message file corrupt or not supported file. Only taken photo in Raw format and have not had problems downloading Raw from compactflash Photos download ok into Canon own software. Any suggestions please.
What camera model are you trying to import raws from, and what version of Elements are you using, and if you know, what version of Camera Raw plug-in do you have?
If the camera is newer than the Camera Raw plug-in you have in Elements then things won’t work.
