.kqp to .jpg Conversion Errors

Post by joolz »

I have about 20 Konica Picture Show floppy discs with photos on them. I've used my external floppy disc reader to upload the files to my iMac & downloaded XnView to convert them to .jpgs. I can successfully load the .kqp files to XnView, but when I try to convert them to .jpg I get nothing but error messages. I've tried several different discs to make sure it's not just a damaged disc, but this is the story every time. Can you advise me? Thank you!

Could you upload an example file [in a ZIP, 2MiB the current forum attachment limit]?

I've been unsuccessful in loading it here. It says, "Invalid file extension: 11__8.KQP". I've tried several on the disc & they won't let me attach them.

You have to put files with unusual file extensions in a ZIP (or similar archive): only a few common extensions can be attached directly...

The first file opens immediately for me in XnView MP 0.89 on Linux using File > Open... in the viewer, or by double-clicking the file in the file browser. :D

Update:

Also using XnView MP 0.89 on Windows, and saves to JPEG format:

04__1.jpg

Once a file is opened successfully there should be no issue saving it to any supported format, a bitmap is a bitmap...

Note that in XnView MP JPEG compression is set in the viewer File > Format settings... -- Write tab

Possibly a Mac issue??

If you still have a problem, possibly there is a setting I have enabled that is relevant, but I think probably not.
