I have recently imported a series of DNG files from a Leica M9 into Aperture.  I receive a message that these are in an "unsupported image format."  Has anyone had and resolved this problem.



Aperture 3, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    I've been using an M9 with Aperture for a couple years, and haven't seen this.


    Have you tried quitting and restarting Aperture?  If you try and view one of the files via double clicking in the Finder, does it work OK?


    How are you importing them?  Are you using a CF card reader, or directly via USB connection to the camera?


    Have you previously used RAW files from the M9 with success, or is this the first time you've imported M9 photos?

    Also, can you open up the DNG in Preview? Go to the "File" menu, then to "Export", then "Original", save it to a location where you can find the image, and try to open it in Preview. Post back with your results.
