I just installed Adobe Lightroom 5 on my new laptop and now I'm trying to import raw files from my Nikon D5300 but I keep getting the error message, "The file is not recognized by the raw format support in Lightroom." I already downloaded the DNG Converter. Does anyone have further suggestions?
The above link provides a full list of supported camera models. The Nikon D5300 was provided in LR 5.3! what version do you have installed?
Using older versions of Nikon software to download your raw files from your camera can make them unreadable by Lightroom. Please provide some more info so other users who may provide help can respond to your problem. Operating system etc. what are you doing and what error message do you get if any?
If you have Lightroom 5 you should not have to resort to using the DNG Converter.
