What I try to say is that that code means only that there was a problem with the download - nothing more. To help you we need your operative system ps version to start with. 6.5 is a very old version, we are over 9 right now.
I had no idea 6.5 wasn't the latest. It's simply what came up in a search. I'm running windows 8 and CS 5. I know, but I can't afford anything else at the moment.
With that info, what do you think I should do to get adobe to recognize my Sony a77? Its interpretations of my cameras RAW files aren't quite right.
recognize my Sony a77?
Please confirm the exact camera model.
The A77 was first supported in Camera Raw 6.5 which is compatible with CS5
The A77 II was first supported in Camera Raw 8.5 which is only compatible with CS6 and Cloud versions. Not CS5.
It's the original a77, not the II.
Fact of the matter is, I have no cameras supported. I import as generic RAW and my colors are a bit off. I can preview the original in the folder and someone with red hair will, in fact, have red hair. I open the photo in photoshop, and the red is mostly gone. I check adobe's raw processing settings. I have them on 2010 and everything default/neutral at 0.
