I am having trouble importing RAW files from my computer that I took with my new nikon D5. I previously had a nikon D610 and have never had any trouble with raw files. When i tried to import files from new camera into lightroom 5 i got the message "the files are not recognized by the raw format support in lightroom. can anyone help?
You need Lightroom 6.5/Lightroom CC 2015.5 or later.
Althernative: you can use the free Adobe DNG converter and convert the RAW to DNG, which can be imported into Lightroom.
thank you, i purchased creative cloud and it works now
