Can E-5 ORF file be redeveloped in E-M1?

I've tried this and it doesn't seem to work, but maybe I'm overlooking something?

Problem: I have some ORF frames taken with the E-5 that I'd like to develop using the E-M1's jpeg engine (just to see if there is any/much difference in jpeg engine results). So I went to my computer and selected the files I want to redevelop; copied them into the E-M1's SD card, and returned the card to the E-M1.
I find I can open the files in the E-M1 (they show up on the LCD screen), but when I go to the edit menu and select one of the frames for raw edit, an error message appears ("cannot save file").

Just wondering whether anyone else has tried this and perhaps succeeded (maybe there's a setting I've forgotten, etc.)


(another good reason to shoot  RAW+JPG instead of JPG alone)
