I had a similar problem recently and finally this week found a fix, but I don't understand the problem.

This is on my Windows 10 Laptop.

I have been using DPP4 since it came out and update it occasionally. About a month ago I started having DPP crash (4.7.x) which had never happened before. It kept getting worse so I upgraded to the latest 4.9.20 but that didn't help.

My normal process is to pull the SD card from my camera and plug it into the built in card reader on my laptop and transfer the files to my hard drive. Then I would open up DPP and start editing the files on the hard drive. I typically did not take out the SD card from the laptop.

Monday this week, after DPP crashed, I shutdown the laptop and before restarting, pulled out the SD card. After restarting DPP worked fine. On Tuesday, after taking more pictures, I put the SD card in again and as before DPP crashed.

I have now repeatably had DPP crash with the SD card in the card reader and not crash when the SD card is not in the card reader. I don't know why, but since I have started taking the SD card out before starting DPP, I have not had a single crash.

sorry to hear that!

what i do consistently since 2006 is that i take the CF out of the camera and stick it in the card reader and download all of the photo files on my desktop (drag and drop) and then i wait to make sure files have downloaded on my desktop and also download them on a different drive as well. then, i'd delete the from CF card (files only) and keep the card clean (i don't reformat the CF card for a long time--when reformatting is needed, it should be done in camera, not on pc) for the next use. at this point, i check to make sure all the files open and there is no issue and move on with PP!

it seems you you are dealing with a bad card-reader or faulty CF card or connection wire! by drag and drop of the files on your desktop, you know where the files are and then you are not dealing with card-reader or any other bad node in the the chain but directly the file on your desktop.

as i have noted, i have been practicing this way since 2006 with absolutely no issue good luck.
