>I plug my camera into my computer and try and open the RAW files directly from the camera
Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!
That is a monumentally bad idea. Transfer the closed files to your local hard drive first.
This excerpt is from a long-gone post by the late, lamented author Bruce Fraser:

Opening files directly from the camera is a bad idea for a variety of reasons*, and it most certainly isn't faster than using a FireWire or USB2 card reader.
Drains the camera battery
Runs the risk of the software you're using to open the images writing to the card and destroying the format
Runs a small but significant risk of USB power frying the camera
Slowest method known to mankind of getting images off a CF or SD card
>I just downloaded the Plug-in 3.7 Camera Raw and had to create folders for it in Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CS2/File Formats. the only folder I had was Application Support/Adobe so the rest I created. <br /> <br /> If this is true, your Photoshop install is hosed, trashed, toast, <br /> <br /> This is the correct path: <br /> <br />c <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1y4L52ILID0InkNSCzPQm8ClSBpRK1" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1y4L52ILID0InkNSCzPQm8ClSBpRK1_thumb.jpg" border="0" /> <br />c Click on the thumbnail
I tried copying the files to my hard drive. That's not the problem, the problem is that my files are not recognized as actual .RAW files and remain as the preview icon (I cannot preview or open the files).
Note that it is NOT the Library in your username.
So the only way to fix this is to re-install Photoshop?
No; delete all the garbage folders you created. Then install ACR in the proper location.
"Note that it is NOT the Library in your username."
Ok thats' where I was looking. I checked the appropriate Library folder and the plug-in is installed there with all the correct folders. Now what?
Now proceed as I suggested in post #6:
delete all the garbage folders you created. Then install ACR in the proper location.
But I see from your posts in the other thread that your camera is not supported by ACR 3.7, which is the latest version that works with CS2.
