The DNG Converter is NOT a plug-in. It's a stand-alone application, and you can put it wherever you want: in the applications folder, on your desktop etc.
Make sure you download version 4.2 of the DNG Converter.
As for the ACR plug-in, you need version 3.7. Later versions of ACR DO NOT work with CS2.
You put it exactly where the obsolete ACR plug-in is installed by default when you first install Photoshop.
Exactly where depends on your platform, Macintosh or Windows. There are very precise instructions on the page where you download the updates. Read them.
Also read the FAQs on this forum.
Regarding installing ACR, the Photoshop 'help' menu provides an 'update' option that will install it (and other PS wares (eg, Bridge)) easily. Let us know if you have any other problems.
I'm not sure the auto updater works for ACR 3.7 and CS2. It does work for CS3 and ACR 4.2 some times. :)
How can I find out which version of ACR I am using. I am not sure if I have the newest version installed.
Look in About Plug-in > in the Photoshop menu if you are on a Mac or in the Help menu if you're on Windows.
I think it was the CS3 beta that caused my Raw to stop functioning.
I tried the auto update with no effect.
I tried relaunching the Bridge installer to no effect.
I tried to manually place the file but did not have the appropriate file path.
I only got as far as ProgramFiles/CommonFiles/Adobe
I tried creating the missing folders manually.
I pasted the file into the final folder and everything seems to be working fine now.
I'm using XP
