.NEF files taken on my new Nikon D600 won't open in CS5 Bridge Camera Raw.

Error Message:   The Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in did not recognise the format of one or more files."


.NEF files taken with the Nikon D90 are opening perfectly.


There must be plug-ins available - I just can't seem to find them. Can someone send a link please?

I am working on a Mac


URGENT help please - I have a whole wedding to edit!

    D600 raw files only open in CS6/ACR7.3.  You need to upgrade your Photoshop.


    An alternative is to use the free DNG Converter to convert your NEFs to DNGs and those will open in older ACR versions.  Another alternative is to get Lightroom 4.3.

    I have owned 5.1 Photoshop for less than a YEAR! When I bought it they said that it would be at LEAST a year till 6 came out and less than a month later TA DA 6 came out! GURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR


    Now they want me to upgrade again.

    If it really was only a month before CS6, then you may have been or may still be eligible for a free upgrade, but perhaps that was only for a limited time.

    I bought my 'upgrade from Cs3 to CS5 on Jan 31 2012...I had CS orig for years before that. Order # AD004671634.


    Do you know when they actually released CS6 I KNOW it was VERY shortly after I bought CS5 and I was VERY frustrated...I did not know that I could get the free upgrade! UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH
