RAW codec?

is there raw codec for windows anywhere or is there other way to get thumbnails and viewing in windows to work without having to always open pentax software?
also was the pentax Digital Camera Utility always slow like this or is this K3 file size slowing it down?

I have the Microsoft Codec Pack , it open my DNG file and PEF file in Windows Explorer. You should try this first
Download Microsoft Camera Codec Pack (16.4.1970.0624) from Official Microsoft Download Center

I don't have a K-3, but take a look here: RICOH IMAGING CANADA INC. | PENTAX RAW codec software for Windows Vista (32 bit) and Windows 7 (32 bit). Should work for K-3 raws too.

I know this thread is a bit old but I have a new K3 and I've tried both the current Microsoft Camera Codec Pack and the current Pentax RAW Codec Pack and neither one of them will display a K3 .PEF thumbnail in Windows 7.


Any ideas?

I use FPV. Intergrates very well in W7 and even shows the metadata in the Explorer status bar

Is it fast? The reason I ask is that I had to uninstall the Adobe DNG codec because it slowed directory reads in Explorer something terrible with Win 7.

That's going to depend on a number of local factors such as the specs of the PC as well as how many RAW files in the folder you are wanting thumbnails generated for. Then finally your own personal patience threshold
I have it installed on two machines, the dual core is not as fast as the 6-core.
