This is absolutely weird. I can view it in Pentax Photo browser, with
Ifranview or as a thumbnail using the Windows PEF Codec. I get a CRC
failure when I attempt to copy the files. I haven't seen a file fail
with CRC failure for years. Especially one that can be read by /any/
program at all. I've run a file structure and hardware diagnostic on
the drive and there are no reported problems. So I have data files that
cannot be backed up with the standard copy utility.

The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog.
