I don't use that camera, but it MAY be that the raw available for your CS5 will not work... meaning you either convert the files or go to the Cloud version of Photoshop and a later version of raw
John, many thanks for the reply. I have suspected that CS5 is a little too
far back for the camera, but thought the updates might cover the problem,
but they do not seem to. I will take your advice and see about a later
version of Photoshop after checking to see whether the Sony Alpha 5100 is
listed. Does that make sense?
Again, many thanks, you lifted some grey clouds for me.

Your camera requires at least Camera Raw 8.7. Photoshop CS5 cannot deal with that version. You'll have to download and use the free DNG converter to create DNG copies that you can work with in Photoshop CS5.
Many thanks, Jim. It was certainly clear to me that CS5 either had to go in favor of something in the modern age, or you would have to set me straight. Much appreciated.
