I carried out a little more analysis on this. It turns out that if I launch ACR 4.6 and then use 'File-Open' or 'Process Multiple Files' then I can open my D90 NEFs.
However when I use Elements 5's 'Photo Downloader' tool it fails to import the D90 NEFs into the catalogue. Does this mean I need to wait for an update to Elements before I can import & view the D90 NEFs via the organiser?
Are you using a card reader or are you connecting the camera to the computer? You really should use a card reader. The camera connections are often goofy and depend on setting the camera to act as a hard drive instead of a camera. It's easier and better to just use a card reader...
Yes I use a card reader. It's not an issue with reading the card as I'm currently shooting the D90 as RAW+Fine JPEG. When I launch Elements Photo Downloader it shows me the NEF files + the JPEGS but only the thumbprint image for the JPEGs (The NEF files all have the same icon). It allow me to select both the NEFs + JPEGs for loading into the organiser but then fails to load the NEFs, saying the file is unrecognised or damaged.
I can however open the NEFs from ACR4.6 within the Elements 5 editor. I'm assuming therefore that ACR 4.6/the editor are fine working with D90 NEFs but the 'Photo Downloader' part of Elements isn't.
Any further thoughts?
What I've done for the time being is coverted .NEFs to .DNGs which of course gets round the issue but adds a step into my workflow. Hopefully there is another option.
