This fits file seems to be incomplete and/or corrupt !!!
Hello Vincent, Hello Mabula. I'm having a problem, when I mount a Samba Nas share in Ubuntu in the file manager and want to open a Fits file, I get a message
"This fits file seems to be incomplete and/or corrupt !!!"
But with DSLR files it works.
When I copy the Fits files to the hard disk, they can be opened easily. Other applications like Gimp, Pi can open and display the Fits files via Samba.
Interesting, that seems to have something to do with the file transfer maybe, I'll forward this to Mabula. What kind of NAS do you use and I assume that connection is rock solid? @mabula-admin
It is a Synology Disk Station. The connection is flawless, and the NAS has been performing for years without any problems.
Ok, I've notified Mabula to check your post and see if he has an explanation for the difference with your fits and cr2 files. Normally I wouldn't recommend processing anyway using an external NAS though, as APP needs fast disk access usually.
No processing takes place on the NAS. I only move projects I am not working on to the NAS because of limited space on the SSD of my PC. But sometimes APP wants to access them via network so I don't have to copy them back and forth.
Ah ok, well let's see what Mabula might say, he'll be here when he has some time.
