I cannot view RAW images in digital photo professional.

[ Edited ]

All I can see after loading them is the number and a cross on the image. This is 7D mark11 software

What camera do you own and what version of DPP?

Strange. Did it ever work? Download the latest software from here and see if that helps.

OK. So you downloaded files from camera card into a folder on your computer and then opened the folder in DPP and you get the "X" images?

 

DPP3 or DPP4?

 

DO you have another photo software that you could use to try to open the files; like Lightroom or Photoshop?

And is it a 32-bit or 64-bit OS?

 

And you still haven't told us whether you're using DPP 3 or DPP 4. If you don't know the answer or don't understand the question, you have some reading to do.

 

How old is the card reader, and what cameras did you use it with before you got the 7D2? The 7D2 produces large RAW files; it's conceivable that the card reader can't handle them and is losing part of the image. The "cross" figure (I assume you mean a gray field with two intersecting lines reaching the corners of the frame) means that DPP considers the image file to be garbled or incomplete. One way to test this is to use the EOS Utility (again there are two versions) to download the image files directly, bypassing the card reader. In some OSes that process can be tricky to set up, but it might let you rule out the card reader as the source of the problem.
