K3 - Lightroom 5 DNG preview

I have a problem with previews when importing to Lightroom 5.3, all i get is the Icon leaving me having to import all the images to be able to see what i have. I have updated the firmware to 1.03 on my K3 but with no joy.

Ooh you're scaring me, I was ready to update myself... Are you sure they are DNG files?

I've updated the K-3 to 1.03.I just checked and I have no problem seeing the previews of camera-generated dng's in the import dialog in Lightroom 5.3.

I am having the same problem as you with my K-3. My K-5 shows previews fine in the import dialog. Maybe LR 5.4 will fix this when released.

For some reason you can't see the previews with the K3 when you look at the card under "Devices".. You have to drill down into the folder(s) themselves under "Files". Either choose a subfolder specifically, or start at the top with "Include Subfolders" checked.

I agree: totally annoying.

Doesn't matter if it's PEF or DNG, btw.

Are you running on Mac or PC. The reason i ask is that i run on Mac and when I get info in desktop the preview still doen't work which really scrambles my brain thinking that it may be a Mac issue or both.

Why is this even important? I am still using LR4.x on a Mac and manage with daily galleries of more than 1000 K-3 images.
Just import them all and delete the ones you don't want after viewing them in Develop.
