DIB colors not displaying correctly

Recommended Posts

Loading code:
HDC hDC = GetDC(hWnd);

bmi.bmiHeader.biSize = sizeof(BITMAPINFO);
bmi.bmiHeader.biWidth = nWidth;
bmi.bmiHeader.biHeight = nHeight;
bmi.bmiHeader.biPlanes = 1;
bmi.bmiHeader.biBitCount = nBpp * 8;
bmi.bmiHeader.biCompression = BI_RGB;
bmi.bmiHeader.biSizeImage = nWidth * nHeight * nBpp;

hDibDC = CreateCompatibleDC(hDC);
hDib = CreateDIBSection(hDibDC, &bmi, DIB_RGB_COLORS, &pDibBits, NULL, 0);

if(!pDibBits || !hDib)
	MessageBox(hWnd, "Error allocating DIB.", "Error", MB_OK | MB_ICONERROR);
	return 0;

SelectObject(hDibDC, hDib);
memcpy((unsigned char*) pDibBits, pPixels, nWidth * nHeight * nBpp);

ReleaseDC(hWnd, hDC);

Drawing Code:
BeginPaint(hWnd, &ps);

HDC hDC = GetDC(hWnd);

if(pPixels && hDibDC)
	BitBlt(hDC, 0, 0, nWidth, nHeight, hDibDC, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);

ReleaseDC(hWnd, hDC);
EndPaint(hWnd, &ps);

The pic on the left is how it looks. The pic on the rite is how it SHOULD look. It looks like the RED values of my color array are not being copied correctly. Can anyone help? Some more background info: pPixels is an array of unsigned chars. it's formate is {red, green, blue, red, green, blue} at 24 bits per pixel pDibBits is void, but is allocated as nWidth * nHeight * nBpp, and nBpp is (3 bytes) SO it SHOULD act as an array of unsigned chars.
