I deleted a CR2 file from my CF card, formatted it, then recovered it using Photorec on my Win7 PC. I can see the thumbnail (small and big) in Windows Explorer, but nothing shows up in Windows Photo Viewer. I can't open the file in Photoshop or Bridge CS4 or in Irfanview. Furthermore, I am unable to convert the file with Lightroom, DNG Converter or Digital Photo Pro. Any ideas?
It's a corrupt raw file.
Metadata seems OK (according to exiftool), but DPP displays "pink snow" and Lr won't touch it.
I'm not sure what else to say.
