Can someone please walk me through the steps for how to download the update I need to import my raw files from my sony slt a77
What's a Sony alt a77? Check this list for cameras currently supported and see if yours is in the list.
What version of Lightroom are you currently using?
What operating system are you using?
Are you using the creative cloud version?
The camera you mention requires Lightroom 5.5 or newer. Please provide information, and we can provide the link.
