Can you actually convert the .orf files using the Olympus Software to final JPEG files (i.e., not just previewing them) to confirm that the files are not corrupted?
>I am able to open the .orf files in Olympus Master 2.0 so I believe the files to be intact
Yes, I am able to open the files in Oly Master 2.0 and save to jpg. So I know the files are good. Just PS giving me problems. I can open the converted JPG in PS.
The DNG converter should work - leastwise, it does with my E-3 ORF files, and I am also using XP. However, the DNG converter does need to be the 4.5 version, and not version 3.
The highest version of ACR compatible with CS2 is version 3.7 - however, you can still use the higher versions of the DNG converter for converting E-3 ORFs so that you can open them with CS2.
HTH from an ex E-300 user who upgraded to E-3 :)
I am beginning to become discouraged. I do have DNG Converter 4.5 and Camera Raw 3.7 installed. But no luck. But itis encouraging to know that there is someone out there with the same configuration of E-3 and CS2 that doesn't have the problem.
THere is probably one minute detail I am overlooking. I am able to open the E-330 .orf files. I have CS3 at work, so I am going to try opening the E-3's orf files here and see what comes of it.

Just to clarify: The DNG Converter does not get " installed". It's a stand-alone application to convert the raw files to DNG files first, which you then (later) open in ACR.

Semantics I guess. What I was saying was that I was using the DNG Converter 4.5 (the latest version) and ACR 3.7 (latest version for CS2) and it was in the correct folder according to the instructions that are on the Adobe download instructions. However, I was still following the procedure of trying to convert the .orf file using the DNG Converter, but no success. And since I was unable to convert to .dng, I was unable to attempt to use ACR.
However, Good news.
Since I did get a response that someone using the same configuration of E-3 and CS2 had no problems converting to .dng, I decided to once again check versions, folders, etc. and then reboot. Now everything is working.
Now I can convert the ORF files to DNG using DNG Converter 4.5, and then open those in ACR 3.7! (Same files, same version, same folder).
Who knows! Operator error - maybe- but I swear I repeatedly check and rebooted last night. Maybe I just held my mouth correctly on this reboot.
Again thank you for all your help. I just hope this helps someone else if they have the same issue. Mysteries...
Caught that and corrected.
