Camera Raw/Lightroom: Panasonic Lumix G Vario 35-100mm DNG Error

I have a DJI Inspire Pro with additional lenses, never had an issue with DNG files in Lightroom / Photoshop until I started using a Panasonic Lumix G Vario 35-100mm lens. The DNG files will import and preview the internal JPG image, but LR states an error and can't work with them. After multiple attempts to make them work, using DNG cleaners, I tried Corel PaintShop Pro, and it reads them fine. I have to export as TIFFs that increase the file size by 300% and they will then work in LR/PS... Why is it doing this? How can I make DNGs work in LR/PS without converting them? I'm using the version 2015.7 of LR CC and 2017.0.1 of PS CC on PC running Windows 10. Examples of the files are here, the DNG that doesn't work and the converted TIFF that does. https://drive.google.com/folderview?i... Thanks, Darrell

I was able to import the file just fine into Lightroom CC 2015.12. Make sure you're running the latest versions:

Hi Jeffrey,

I'm now using 2015.12 and although it seems to import, the file can not be edited.

Please see attached image.

Do you not get this error? ?

This is exactly what it was doing in 2015.7.

When you click on the (i) info circle on the thumbnail, you get this message...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled "it depends on an unsupported case".

DNG file issue brings up this error.

Internal JPG preview file displays, but cannot edit file.
