I should note that the loading window says that the Camera Raw is version 4.3.1, but I definately downloaded version 5.2!
Also, when I try to drag a NEF file to elements, I get an error message saying "could not complete your request because Photoshop does not recognize this type of file". What do I do?

You say you are running Elements 6? Photoshop Elements is not the same as Photoshop.
How and where did you install the ACR plug-in? It sounds like you still have the old ACR 4.6 installed, which means that you failed to remove it, and maybe also that you installed ACR 5.2 in a wrong location, not where ACR 4.6 resided.
It would help also if you told us whether you're on a Mac or a Windows box.
Nobody reads the thread titles any more...
Here are the instructions for installing the ACR update:
To install with Adobe Photoshop Elements: NOTE: You must follow all of the new instructions in order to successfully install the Camera Raw plug-in for Photoshop Elements.
1. Exit Photoshop Elements and Adobe Bridge.
2. Open the download file, double-click CameraProfiles.dmg, and follow the onscreen instructions.
3. Navigate to the root of the local disk (not the user's home folder).
4. Navigate to: (Please read directory carefully)
Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CS3/File Formats
5. Move the existing plug-in to another location (for example, a new folder on your desktop). Ensure that you keep this version in case you need to revert back.
6. Copy the Camera Raw plug-in, Camera Raw, from the download into the same folder as in Step 4.
7. Launch Photoshop Elements or Adobe Bridge.
I did put the ACR file in the exact same folder described above (file formats). It is the root library too. I still cannot get it to launch with my NEF files (I get the error message I posted above), but I downloaded the DNG converter and it works with that. I think that it's so weird that it won't work my NEF files though - I use a Nikon D60.
Repeating what I wrote in #3:

Thank you so much for your concise and correct information regarding the error "Adobe Camera Raw 4.6 update failed to install". I also run Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 on a Mac and wonder if, under the "Update Preferences", the location should be changed. As it stands, the location is listed as "/Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 6". Is this correct? If this is not where the downloaded updates are supposed to be located, then this should be changed, correct?
Hi Diane. I'm not sure I follow. Where is the reference to "Update Preferences?"
Same problem! I downloaded Camera Raw 5.2 on Mac 0s x with Elements 6. I can get as far as Library/Application Support/Adobe/ but there is no plugins/ nor CS3 nor file format
After much experimentation what I did do was download into:
To confuse matters more: I find I also have the following:
finderwindow/Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 6/Plug-Ins/FileFormats/Camera_Raw_5_2
The camera raw program has been very difficult to work with and I'm wondering if it isn't in wrong place to allow it to do what it can do, or Elements 6 works better and more quickly with Camera Raw 4.3.
Can I be helped or do I need to play more with this and just put up with the frustration?
By the way, I do not find Camera Raw 4.3 anywhere (except under Plug-Ins information under the open Photoshop program) and I may have deleted (?) it some time ago after much frustration. I am just starting to shoot RAW . Thank You!!!

You are in the WRONG Library. You want the ROOT LEVEL Library, not your user Library.
This screen shot shows the path for both CS2 and CS3. <br />The red arrows go all the way to the folder for CS3. <br /> <br />c <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1lRlHcg6UKE7Egu9xihWadHisvlW5o" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1lRlHcg6UKE7Egu9xihWadHisvlW5o_thumb.jpg" border="0" />
