DNG conversion not working, probably cause chinese CF
« on: August 26, 2020, 02:51:58 PM »
Yesterday I was filming like pretty everyday in a classic 1920x1080 all the afternoon.
It seems that I can't convert the half end of the day, never saw this, and I'm pretty sure it's when I flipped my lexar CF to the chinese Kimsnot 128Go to test it one more time (this card worked 2 times before, i rarely used it because I'm not confident).
I can play the videos in MLVApp and in rw2cdng, but can't convert any of them in DNG.
I tried as usual with mlvdump.exe, and after the fail i also tried exporting in different format from MLVApp (DNG, prores, etc...) and with raw2CDNG 1.7.9.
The results are always 1 blank dng or 5 zero ko DNG, or in the case of proRes a zero Ko .mov file.

here is a sample with a 294Mo MLV file that doesn't convert, if someone want to try.

Ok thank you, I don't know what this problem is but since it happen with me using the kimsnot I was drawing some quick conclusion.
Windows also heavily updated 3 days ago, just to say.
I'm still needing to convert those files. I will continue to investigate tonight in calm without the kids everywhere.

Also converted all frames for me on Windows 10. I'm using MLV App v1.11

I found!
I was sure my 5To hdd has 1To left, but yesterday he became full in the middle of a mass convert!
Thoses MLV and DNG take so much space, I did not realize my holiday put an end to any remaining space on this HDD...

Thanks you for your help!
