i have the .RAW file that came straight from camera in my computer, i need to convert it to dng's so i can import it to resolve or adobe acr, the problem is that i cannot convert it, every time i try to open it with raw2dng.exe the program crashes (or maybe just closes) and nothing happens. I know the .RAW file has information, cause its a 10.2 gb.  and cause i remember i recorded.

i could upload the file to dropbox if someone is willing to help me.

We, or me, need more detail to help you.
- Is it 10GB from the card ? Is it 10 GB after merge/append file ? If merge file, do you still have the file.RAW and file.R00, etc ?
- Which computer system do you use : Windows, Mac, Linux ?

Hope to help you.

Drag and drop the file on to the raw2dng.exe
....
If program crashes change the file name to something simple.
....
If program crashes change the directory name to something simple like raw or put it the root directory and raw2dng.exe in the same directory.

maybe the header is corrupted. Try to take a look at the sticky  threads on the workflow page, there is one that explain how to repair damaged files.
