D800 RAW files will not open in Photoshop CS6

May 23, 2012 7:40 AM

I have just installed the CS6 upgrade to Photoshop CS4 Extended, but now the software will not read the RAW files from my D800.


I have followed Adobe's instructions to check that I have the correct RAW plug-in ( which I have.  I have uninstalled the software and reinstalled the software without success.  I do not want to convert my RAW files into DNG files, so I have ignored that step.


The 'Open in Photoshop' instruction in Lightroom 4 does not open my D800 RAW files either, although the files can be opened in Lightroom 4 OK.


Any idea what the problem is?

    You need the ACR 7.1 Beta.

    The released version should be available before the beta expires (and replace the beta) via an Adobe update that should pop up automatically, or you can always periodically check at

    i have camera raw 7.1.354 and my d800 NEFs (nikon raw files) are not recognised by Nikon Capture NX2, Photoshop CS6, nor Lightroom 4 - so i am wondering what might still be the problem
