As you stated,Photoshop and Bridge will not open the raw files directly as you need Camera raw 8.2 for Canon 70D
Did you used DNG Converter 9.2 ?(Link Adobe - Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter : For Windows )
Lets reset Photoshop and Bridge Preferences first and see if makes a Difference
Hi Akash, yes I did get acr 8.2 and converter 9.2. let me read about the preferences,,thank you for responding
Oh thank you so much, it worked!. I deleted .psp files,had a couple that said cs5 preferences at the end of them.(had to do search) holding ctrl alt shift didn't open anything for me.I purged caches and reset standard work spaces in photoshop and bridge,camera raw anything I could find one in. I am not thrilled about having to convert to dng before using but at least I can carry on. Thank you so much for your help.
Thanks for the update
Glad to know your issue is fixed
