Windows XP ORF thumb viewer

Hi All,

Just a quickie. Is there such a piece of software that you can download that will allow you to view ORF files as thumbnails in XP explorer windows?

All the best
Garrie

Hi

Not for Windows XP as far as I know. The Oly RAW Codec is for Windows Vista only (both 32 and 64 bit).

See

Hi, You could try FastStone Image Viewer. The latest version reads E-3 orfs OK. It's a bit more than just a thumbnail viewer though.

http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

It is free for personal use,which is handy.

Re: Windows XP ORF thumb viewer

My first step with E3 ORF files is always to convert them to DNG. Then I can view them with Irfanview or Adobe Bridge.

I think what people want is a way to see thumbnails in a folder as you can with Arcsoft for ORF's from E1,E500 etc.

Re: Windows XP ORF thumb viewer

I have dowloaded the Arcsoft viewer on my XP pc and it does not work!

Although I can view them OK in Adobe Bridge which came with CS2.

Any ideas?
