Popping in quickly...
(Sorry, I seldom get to read PDML lately.)

I've always used Adobe DNG converter which works well (or at least used
to).
https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/using/adobe-dng-converter.html

One thing that you'd need to choose there is the target version of DNG.
I would first convert just one file and check it by opening in all the
software tools that you are planning to use, to make sure it is adequate.

Yet another option that could be viable for you is to install a codec for
viewing RAW files on Windows (I believe it should allow showing thumbnails
in Windows Explorer as well as in Windows' own image viewer, "photos".)
If you have Windows 10, - you can get a free Microsoft's package "Raw
Image extension":
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/raw-image-extension/9nctdw2w1bh8?=&activetab=pivot:overviewtab
Presumably, it should read all Pentax DSLR's raw files, as it is using
this library:
https://www.libraw.org/supported-cameras

If you need that same functionality on a Win-7 computer, Ricoh/Pentax has
a raw codec for Win-7:
http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/digital/rawcodec_win.html

I hope this helps.

I have a couple of hundred PEF's that are all in one folder on my
harddrive.. would like to copy all of them to DNG's so I can view the
thumbnails in windows explorer on my computer.. I can see them in
Freestone.. but it is cumbersome for me with my work flow..

Can I do this in bulk?  Got a link to a free down load for me that will

Thanks for trying to help, Igor...

ALAS I have windows 7 PRO - the 64 bit WIndows 7 - so the last option
doesn't work... (says so specifically on line)

The Adobe doesn't work either... as I don't have WIndoze 10..

oh well, it's not really critical - faststone does work.

Ann,

According to a posting I've read on Adobe support forum, ver. 12.4 of DNG
converter is the last one that runs on Windows 7.

Adobe doesn't keep it on their download website, but it is
still available from their ftp site:
ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/photoshop/cameraraw/win/12.x/CameraRaw_12_4.exe

What I've just discovered is that those Firefox and Chrome-like browsers
that I have on my Win-10 box for some reason couldn't download this file,
but Internet Explorer can.

Try, and if you cannot download it, - e-mail me, and I will download
it and make it available for you on a website.

Cheers,

Igor

Ann,

I have version 12.2.0.387 Adobe DNG converter. It DOES work with Windows 7 Pro
64-bit.

It's not the current converter from Adobe that requires Windows10. It's the
older one that's no longer available on their site.

I just looked in my downloads folder and I still have the executable to install
it. I can send it to you as an email attachment OFF LIST if you want me to.

It's a 467,715 KB file

If it won't install, I also have the unpacked files (that's where I got the
v.12.2.0.387 from) and I can send those as an attachment as well.

OR I can also do a Dropbox if you would prefer ... although I haven't used that
in a long time & would have to figure out how to do it again.

If you want to do it that way, I'll figure it out and send you the link OFF LIST.

Or maybe a more computer savvy list member will be able to hook you up.

Ann -

I found I still have a copy of DNG Convertor v9.5.1.  It's from 2016 so
should still work with Win 7.  I sent you a separate email with a link
to download it from Dropbox.  It's a big file (251 mB) so it will take a
while to download.  Let me know if that works for you.

I have a couple of hundred PEF's that are all in one folder on my
harddrive.. would like to copy all of them to DNG's so I can view the
thumbnails in windows explorer on my computer.. I can see them in
Freestone.. but it is cumbersome for me with my work flow..

Can I do this in bulk?  Got a link to a free down load for me that
will work?

thanks guys,

Ann - I found I still have a copy of DNG Convertor v9.5.1.  It's from 2016 so should still work with Win 7.  I sent you a separate email with a link to download it from Dropbox.  It's a big file (251 mB) so it will take a while to download.  Let me know if that works for you.

Paul, John and Igor...

My lightbulb went on at 3 am .... I don't want a converter to DNG... I
need something to bulk copy my PEFS to JPG"S leaving the PEFS alone...
Ugh. I just need to see what is on the PEFs when I'm browsing my image
folders..  I have a feeling I don't need anything to big or fancy to do
that..  I can't see the raw files DNGS  (or others)  in WIndows Explorer
either.

Now that that is cleared up - I can go back to bed . But perhaps the
converter will be of interest to others on list ..

You all really take good care of me..

I would first convert just one file and check it by opening in all

adequate.

Yet another option that could be viable for you is to install a

If you have Windows 10, - you can get a free Microsoft's package

Aha!  If all you need are viewable JPGs you can use Instant JPG from
Raw
.  All it does is extract the embedded JPG from the raw file.  It
will batch process -  select the raw files you want the JPGs from, then
right click to open the context menu, that's where you'll find the menu
item for Instant JPG.  See the link below - the app is freeware.

You can teach the browser to do that by installing what is called a 'codec'.
Then you don't have to do any file conversion/copying, etc. - it just works.

Ricoh offer one for Windows 7.  Their website says it doesn't work for the
64-bit version of Windows 7, but I'm pretty sure one of the earlier posts
in this thread had a pointer to a codec that worked fine.

(That's what I did back in the days when I was using Windows 7).

files to convert but I know some are hiding in PEF only form on my hard

I haven't shot with the ist_D in years _ sold it and the software for
that was on a long dead hard drive .. I've been always shooting making
