I have a Sony A6000 camera and can't seem to get Lightroom 5.6 to recognize the files and download them on a PC running Windows 8. No problem on a Mac. The Windows PC will see it with windows explorer but can't seem to get Lightroom to recognize the raw files. I saw some articles about downloading a a plugin for lightroom but no where can I find where to download anything. Anyone have any ideas?
That camera has been supported since version 5.4 of Lightroom. Are you sure you have Lightroom 5.6 installed? There is no plug-in for Lightroom to provide the camera support. Lightroom does not use the Camera Raw plug-in.
