Using LR 2.7. Can't import raw files from my brother's memory card (Nikon D7100 I believe). Have downloaded DNG converter, and am fairly sure I have done everything correctly except I get this message: "The source folder does not contain any supported camera raw files" when trying to convert. I have tried every level of compatibility under preferences. Any idea what I am doing wrong, or what I can do to view my pictures? I should have insisted he shot in jpeg. :-(
You should single-click the name of the folder with the raw files not double-click into that folder.
Also you should probably copy the files from the memory card to the local hard-drive using Windows Explorer or Finder before running the DNG Converter on the files.
I think you’ll need to use the oldest compatibility option: ACR 2.4 although you could try 4.1 and see if things work with that.
You helped me on the other page. Thanks so much. All good now.
