Did you try opening the files using File>open
Yes... the answer is : BECAUSE IT IS THE WRONG TYPE OF FILE... The file has the extension ARW

Open the Editor on the menu click:
Help >> Updates
Then install Adobe Camera Raw 6.7
I had a similar issue with a Sony RX100. It was not supported by ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) until version 7.2. Version 7.2 includes the NEX 7 too. It may have been included in earlier versions, but I'm not sure.
ACR is the free Adobe plug in that has all the camera and lens correstions and adjustments. The camera makers create there RAW formats and Adobe then, one at a time, turns that into conversion data in ACR. At least I think that's how it works!
PSE 10 will only go to ACR 6.7. It won't upgrade ACR past 6.7. You have to buy PSE 11 to get functionality with ACR 7.2
The way it works it that you have PSE search for updates under the Help menu. When PSE 10 was new, it allowed me to update the ACR to 6.7. In fact it insisted I do it. The same was true with PSE 11. It alerted me that an upgrade was available.
A similar situation exists with Lightroom. My Sony camera would not work with LR 4. It had to upgrade itself to 4.2
If you don't want to deal with the Adobe details, Sony provides "Image Data Converter" that can make files from the Sony RAW images that PSE10 can work with.
Nex 7 wasw supported in ACR 6.6
It works !!!
Glad to help.
