There are some new codecs available from Microsoft: link

For those who don't know, a codec (coder-decoder) allows you to view thumbnails and slideshows or your photographs in Windows without having to use third-party software such as PhotoShop.

A recommended download for all Windows users.

You can download the Adobe DNG codec from here for Windows 7.

You might be able to find one for other Windows versions by searching the web.
