I have the same problem as you and looks like we have tried the same trouble shooting steps but now have gone one further and have an odd result. I removed Aperture and all related preferences from my computer then reinstalled from the app store and created a new library to do some testing. I took some test shots with my camera, a sony nex-f3, and downloaded them to Aperture well the raw files downloaded then when right to unsuported format. It's almost acting like the camera isn't supported and it worked for months under 3.32. To make it even stranger the same files (raw from the same camera) is a shared iphoto and Apertrue library work in iphoto. If i may ask what kind of camera are you using?

Sony nex-F3 is not on the list of supported cameras http://www.apple.com/aperture/specs/raw.html
Maybe you have been lucky previously.

Sony 850 and a nex 5n. I have yet to download new photos but most of the other photos are fine except those 200.

Are all your Sony 850 and a nex 5n images unsupported, or only the 200 "lost & found images" and other sony raw files are ok? Are you able to open Sony images at all?
Can you tell by the filenames, if the unsupported images are duplicates of images that are o.k.?
After a rebuild Aperture shows all stray images, that are not connected to current versions in a kind of Lost&Found folder - usually these are redundant images that you can delete and forget (after making a backup of them just in case). Look at the dates and filenames and check, if you have good versions of them.

It is just these 200 or so photos. All others fine except some video clips. These are not duplicates. I have access to the metadata of these files and can see where these photos fit into the seequence of shooting. I have just tried to repair photos and database suggested by tech support through library first aid to no avail. I have to call them back ot see what is next. The good thing is that I can use Sony's software to access the images so they are not lost but...

What I meant with my question - are the images that are o.k. also Sony 850 and nex 5n images, or are those in a different format? I am just trying to figure out, if Aperture cannot decode your raw format any longer or if their is some corruption with your raw files.

I also just loaded recent photos, same cameras and raw format.

Sorry forgot to add that the newly added photos are fine.

Have you tried the other Library First Aid options - "Repair Permissions" and "Rebuild Database"?
Also open the "unsupported" image files in another image editor - Preview, Photoshop, Adobe DNG Converter, to see if they are really corrupted.
If they are referenced, you can access them outside the Aperture library package; if they are managed crl-click the aperture Library to reveal the Masters folder and look for the images by import date.

Can view in LR but cannot edit or print. Cannot view in preview. Sony's software can display but not in their editor. Tried new library with file backup from Carbonite but also does not work. I did try repair permissions and rebuild database. It did not help. It seems to me for whatever reasons these files got corrupted when updating going to 3.3 to 3.4. It maybe time to move on. It is a bit unfortuante due to the fact I back up to three different areas for protection. I cannot explain why the backed up files from carbonite do not work as well.

The update really does not touch and change the image files itself - maybe something else is wrong. First thing to do would be to check these particular images in your backup - in your Time Machine backup you can go back in time and find out exactly, at which time the images got corrupted. And if you discover, that the corruption occured earlier, I'd make a hardware check.
Your signature says "MacPro, Mac OS X (10.4.8)"; I think the MAcPro came with a Hardware Check CD. I'd run a disk check on the volume, where your image files are stored, and also check the RAM.

The Sony NEX-3 is on the list. The F3 and C3 are both in the same family, and should be supported. The F and C are just the physical form factor of the device.

The latest raw photo update cured my problems the nex-F3 was incluced in the list. RichiePoo I wold have thought you were right but their is obviously somthing else going on.
