Summary0000485: Couldn't save information in DNG file
DescriptionI made a photo with Sony A100. Then converted with help of Lightroom 2 to dng format. Opened dng file with GeoSetter, set geo coordinates. When I try to save, I recieve error:
Error: [minor] Error reading PreviewImage data in MinoltaMakerNote - C:/Documents and Settings/ElgazinMO/??????? ????/DSC07182.dng

You could use for test my dng file:
Additional InformationC:\Documents and Settings\ElgazinMO\??????? ????\geosetter\tools\exiftool.exe -@ "C:\DOCUME~1\ELGAZI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\et01115EE9.arg" -common_args "C:\Documents and Settings\ElgazinMO\??????? ????\DSC07182.dng"

This is a minor error which can be disabled in program settings (see attached screenshot).

GeoSetter uses ExifTool ( ) for saving the changes. When writing the data, ExifTool sometimes reports warnings and sometimes it reports errors. In case of an error, ExifTool won't save any changes (see attached screenshot). Additionaly there are so called "minor errors" which can be ignored.

I assume that you handled your image with another software before which maybe did some incorrect things with the metadata ;-) See also here:
("I get MakerNote warnings or errors when reading or writing information")
