have yesterday upgraded Macbook to OSX El Capitan. Upgraded Lightroom 4 to Lightroom 6 and still cannot get Lightroom to recognise either the camera or the ARW files.
When camera connected to computer and Lightroom 6, it is recognised as a Canon. Not the Sony it is. Why is this ? (Previously I did have a Canon).
Make sure you have installed the latest update of Lightroom 6. Your camera requires at least Lightroom 6.1.1.
Many thanks Jim,
Have downloaded patch.
6.1.1 now reads files OK but camera still comes up as Canon. May be a minor conflict somewhere, but I can live with that.
I suggest you install Lightroom 6.4. That is the most recent update.
