    You have probably set your camera to take sRAW instead of the full-size RAW file.

    Large Fine is still JPEG, raw is raw...

    RAW for 40D should be around 10MB. What is your file extension? How are you transferring the files to the PC?

    Other than looking to see if you're shooting sRAW (I think not - that's too small for sRAW) or JPEG (more likely), something else you should know is that you cannot shoot RAW in basic mode (green square and the sports / landscape / portrait modes).

    That's still JPEg, not RAW. Are you specifically looking to get RAW files?
