You need atleast version 5.2 of Lightroom to access Canon G16 raw files.
Reference article : Cameras supported by Adobe Camera Raw
So, you can either upgrade to newer version of Lightroom (version 6 or 5) or use free Adobe DNG Converter to convert those images to DNG.
That camera wasn't supported until LR 5.2.
You have two choices if you want to use raw files from that camera:
- Upgrade Lightroom to version 6 (5 is no longer being sold).
- Download the free Adobe DNG converter, convert the CR2 files from your Canon to DNG, and import those.
Get the DNG converter here: Adobe.com - New downloads
Thank you,so much for your quick reply Chetna. I did find the post you referred to after I posted the question (my pre-post search was too specific and did not bring up a hit), unfortunately for some reason I could not delete the post after I found the answer. Sorry to have troubled you.

Glad you found the answer.
Thank you, Hal. I upgraded and hopefully that will solve the problem. Best, Monika
