One would not expect an action recorded on a raw file to work on a "cooked" or non-raw file, since the recorded action must be calling on ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) to convert the raw file.
Please explain in detail how your action was recorded, step by step, and give sensible, complete and exact details about your system:
Note that this is boilerplate text.
If you give complete and detailed information about your setup and the issue at hand,
such as your platform (Mac or Win),
exact versions of your OS, of Photoshop (not just "CS6", but something like CS6v.13.0.6) and of Bridge,
your settings in Photoshop > Preference > Performance
the type of file you were working on,
machine specs, such as total installed RAM, scratch file HDs, total available HD space, video card specs, including total VRAM installed,
what troubleshooting steps you have taken so far,
what error message(s) you receive,
if having issues opening raw files also the exact camera make and model that generated them,
if you're having printing issues, indicate the exact make and model of your printer, paper size, image dimensions in pixels (so many pixels wide by so many pixels high). if going through a RIP, specify that too.
someone may be able to help you (not necessarily this poster).
a screen shot of your settings or of the image could be very helpful too.
Please read this FAQ for advice on how to ask your questions correctly for quicker and better answers:
Thanks, station_2, but I don't think thats it. It should be able to work the same on both kinds of file. I think it's probably a photoshop glitch... maybe i have to uninstall it and rein tall, or reset it...
If anyone knows how to do that, and the pros vs the cons, please advise.

No, you wouldn't know.
