K20D firmware 1.01 PEF Problem

Hi,
Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I upgraded my K20D firmware to 1.01. Now when I shoot in RAW (PEF) I can no longer open the images in Bridge or Vista's Media Player. It says invalid image.

Help!
Thanks
Keith

I don't know whether this will help as I do not have a K20.

You could try checking whether your version of the RAW codec is up to date, I believe there have been two versions which support the K20.

My apologies if I'm wrong about this, and it wastes your time.

You might need an update for your software to be able to recognize the new Pentax Camera RAW version.

I'm almost sure you can get an Adobe update right away, not so sure about Vista. Might be a few weeks before you see that one.

The problem is that lots of software recognizes RAW file format by several exif tags. Such as "Make" and "Model" wich descript who built this camera and what model it is.
1.00 firmware of K20D says in Make "Pentax corporation", while 1.01 says just "Pentax" as there is no Pentax Corporation now, there is Hoya Corp.
So that's why K20D users experiense problems.
