Silkypix doesn't recog Q7 DNG files?

Hey guys- the Q7 came with Silkypix Ver.3 of which I've updated to version 3.0.0.8 (latest version)........but upon trying to open a Q7 DNG file, I get a message stating the software doesn't recognize the DNG file........anyone else have this issue?
Is this strictly a jpeg editor?

I do have Adobe Photoshop which can open the DNG's with CamRaw but wanted to checkout the Silkypix app.

Anyone using Silkypix with success on DNG files on a Mac running 10.9.5?

Odd, DNG is supposed to be universal. You might have unsupported lens correction with newer hardware, but DNG is supposed to be the answer to software incompatibilities..

Multi-vendor interoperability: to be suitable for workflows where different hardware and software components share raw image files and/or transmit and receive them.

Steve, I don't think its an issue with the type of DNG but rather does Silkypix read DNG files at all.
Does anyone work with DNG files with Silkypix?

Yes it does, I've used the versions that come with PENTAX for DNG. But those bundled versions won't read files from cameras that the bundled version wasn't included with. For that you need the full commercial version. But you said you upgraded? Or did you just get the Pentax version update?

Have you tried uninstalling your updated version and reinstalling the exact bundled version?
The bundled version should work with the camera it was boxed with.

Sadly my Mac doesn't read the bundled CD and upon checking it with my Windows machine- I'm only seeing a Windows application- nothing on the disc for Mac.
Is there a link online where I can download the app and perhaps "unlock" it with my Pentax Q7 serial or something similar?

I'd really like to try this app out on my Mac......am I missing a CD?
(Only 1 CD arrived with my Q7.)

Page 83 of the PDF manual for the Q7
suggests that the (single) CD
has "Silkypix Developer Studio 3.0 LE"
for "Mac OS X 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 or 10.8".

The second Q7 (all black) I ordered from another vendor is slated to arrive tomorrow- I'll check that CD and see if there's anything different.
(Giving that Q7 to my daughter- she loves the Q, she won't be using her micro 4/3 Panasonic G3 anymore!)

What OS does your Mac have?

I don't know Win8, but it may be set up to disregard Mac files.

Yes, that'll show if the first CD is just bad. It can happen.

Those Pentax genes are sure to get expressed sooner or later!

Mac OS X 10.9.5..........I thought about the fact the Windows machine may not show Mac files- let me cheek with my other Macs and see if they can read the CD.

The current version of SILKYPIX is 6.0.18.1/6.1.18.1 (a Mac update came out a few days ago to solve some minor issues with OS X 10.10.3 ).

You can download the trial version of this one from silkypix.us - it works for 30 days - and compare to see if it works with this latest version.
