    DNG "not the right kind of document" in PS CS3




      I'm a long time CS3 user. It has served my needs for the past few years without too much trouble. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", right?


      Well CS3 might be broken for me now.


      I recently got my hands on a Pentax K1, one of the few camera people to shoot DNG in camera. When I see them in the file browser there are thumbnails, and I can even view them. However, Bridge CS3 won't build these thumbnails and Photoshop CS3 won't open them because they are "not the right kind of document".


      To my understanding, DNG's are meant to be compatible with all Adobe products regardless of age, one of the biggest reasons I stuck with Pentax and Adobe (I don't have to upgrade my software). Did this change along the line or is there another reason why I can't open my DNGs in the very software that's supposed to open them?
