I’m a long time user of RPD and never had troubles when downloading RAW (NEF) file with this great program before.
Now, I’m on a Dell XPS 13 with a built-in micro SD Card reader, so I have to use a clunky set of adapters (micro-usb to regular SD card reader) to transfer pictures from my regular Nikon SD cards. With this far from perfect setup, I have experienced problems lately when transferring pictures with RPD (version 0.9.22 on Ubuntu 20.04): I get some corrupted RAW files (paired jpg’s are fine), i.e. when I try to display them with any RAW editor (darktable, gthumb, etc.), I only get a partial image (most of the frame is gray).
However, if I try to edit (develop) the RAW files (in darktable), it seems that all the content is available, so it may indicate that only the embedded jpg images within the RAW is corrupted/partially transfered.
Also, when I go back to the original RAW files on the SD card and transfer them with a file manager (i.e. Nautilus in GNOME), then they are displaying and editing fine.
So, at first sight (and I may be wrong of course…), it seems that RPD may be missing some bits of the RAW files when it tries to transfer them, considering that the problem does not occur with a “regular” file transfer with the file manager (Nautilus).
Is there anything I’m missing to solve this problem (apart from improving my SD card adapter setup…)? Is there a way to for RPD to double check for file integrity upon transfer?
I may file a bug report if necessary.
Thanks in advance for any help.
