What Sony camera are you using and what 'converter' program are you using?
Thanks for the response. The camera is a Sony NEX VG-20. Converter software is DNG Converter 8.3. Hudson "Chip" LeGrand

So the question now becomes
What version of Lightroom 4? You need at least Lightroom 4.1, or DNG Converter 7.1.
If you have the proper versions, then you need to describe your problem of "Lightroom cannot read the files" in much more detail. If there is an error message, please quote it excatly, word-for-word, verbatim.
Thnx again for the reply. The version of Lightroom I have is 4.0 (working w/Windows 7) This computer and all media files are kept off-line After doing more research, I downloaded DNG Converter 7.1This loaded into a .zip folder, which I am planning to install into the off-line computer andrun. Where does this folder go?
And will this set up work with my version of Lightroom?
What a pain. Makes me wanna go back to shooting .nef files for all stills
When you unzip the download of the converter file, you can install it anywhere you want.
Better you should just update your Lightroom to Lightroom 4.4 (it's free since you already have Lightroom 4) and not bother with the converter.
The free upgrade to Lightroom 4.4 did the trick. Thank u so much for your patience and guidance.
I am remiss not to keep abreast of all the software upgrades and issues... too much informationfloating around in my old brain dating back to time and temperature development of Plus-X & Tri-X.
I did observe that the new install created a folder on the desktop with LR 4.0 inside. Is it safe totrash & delete this folder?
I can't answer that without knowing what's inside the folder.
The folder lives on the desktop - and is simply labelled "Adobe".
Inside the folder are the following 3 items:
1.A folder containing Lightroom 4.0 2.an executable file:
Install Lightroom 4.exe
3.A .pdf Light 4 Read Me file.
Should these be deleted or should they be relocated to Program Folder rather than the desktop?
