Forgive me for bringing up what may be too obvious, but did you decompress (unzip) the downloaded ACR plug-in before installing it?
Its been awhile since I used CS, but there is a File Format folder in the Photoshop only folder, I believe you should install it there instead of the Plug-in File Format folder.
Jennifer, I've got the same problem! Have you found a solution? I've got Window's Vista running Photoshop CS with the Camera Raw 2.4 installed. All of the RAW photos are from my Nikon D70s. I've even tried to convert them all to the DNG but the converter wont recognize the files either.
I'm in big trouble if I can't open these photos.
Support for the Nikon D70s was not added until ACR 3.2 or 3.3. There is no way that ACR 2.4 will allow you to open those files. However, if you download the latest version of the DNG converter (4.2 as of the writing of this note) it should convert your NEF files to the DNG format. Then, if you have ACR 2.4 installed correctly, you should be able to open those DNG files.
It isn't necessary for you to use the corresponding version number of the DNG converter. You should always endeavor to have the latest version of the DNG converter. It will convert the raw files from the largest number of different camera models to the DNG format. And those DNG files will work with any version of ACR clear back to 2.4.
