It sounds like you did not install Camera Raw 4.1 correctly.
Also, Camera Raw is not used by Lightroom, so don't expect some magic there. You need to wait until Lightroom 1.1 to use it with D40x raw files.
Thanks for your quick response. I reinstalled Camera Raw, but the problem persists. HOWEVER, in Bridge I just tried rotating, renaming, appending metadata to some older Nikon D2x files, and the same errors appeared. This must be a problem with Bridge, not ACR. I rebuilt the cache, but that didn't solve the problem. I'll talk to product support in the morning and see if they have any ideas.
Sorry to bother you.
Exactly WHERE did you install Camera Raw 4.1?
To see if Camera Raw is installed correctly in Bridge CS3, pick the "Camera Raw Preferences..." from Bridge's menu bar, and look at the version number in the title bar of the preferences dialog.
If it not "4.1", then you did not install Camera Raw 4.1 correctly.
I installed camera raw.8bi (size is 10,187kb)in
c:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CS3\File Formats
I'm beginning to think this is a Windows Vista issue. I just installed ACR 4.1 on my XP laptop and it works fine. For both the Vista machine and the laptop, my raw files are on an external drive. If I move the raw files on the Vista machine from the external drive to the c: drive, there is no problem. I'm exploring whether there is some permissions issue in Vista that is not allowing me to write to the raw files if they are on an external drive. Ain't new operating systems just great fun!
This is a new computer with Vista installed and only running CS3 and Lightroom. I had to change the "Local Disk Properties" for the external hard drive to "Full Control," by right-clicking on the drive, selecting the "Security" tab, even though I am the administrator and supposed to have the highest level of permissions. Prior to doing that I was simply getting an error message in Bridge saying, "There was an error writing metadata to file xxx."
Thomas and Jeff, thanks.
