          You really should not be trying to use images in camera or on a card for viewing...you should be copying them to the local hard drive. Also, are you talking about a 30D or the Digital Rebel 350? The 30D may need an update: see the Camera Raw Product Page for a link to download the most recent version4.4.1.

            It's the EOS Rebel XT (EOS 350D), I've already downloaded that upgrade. But i'm not trying to view just from the card. Because i work in Photoshop. But now that i want to shoot in RAW..and edit. But i don't know how to make that happen.. In Bridge a can see the jpegs not the RAW..i'm new to RAW so...it's a little confusing for me..It's hard for me to explain in English not my language.. But basically i just want to know..how to get my RAW images that i shot with my cam ..to PS..using Bridge CS3 or PS self

              I found some one with almost the same problem so i am going to change his words a little bit so that you can understand my problem.

              I'd taken a few shots here and there this week in RAW + Large format, but wasn't able to find the RAW files. OK, I thought perhaps I was mistaken and didn't have the settings correct & didn't really take any RAW shots.

              So I reformatted the 4GB Scandisk CF card (via the camera) and took more shots, all in RAW + Large. Going thru the camera display with Info turned on, I can verify that each one was indeed on RAW + Large. But I still can't find them.

              I'm using a cable to connect my EOS Rebel XT (EOS 350D) to transfer the files to a selected folder on my pc. Opening that folder in Windows (I have Win XP)there are only the the JPGs in it. If i open Adobe Bridge CS3 or PS CS3 i would find only the JPGs. Where are my RAW .CR2 files going? I was under the impression they would be in the same folder as the JPG images, with same file number. So that i can see like a thumbnail or something.

              I've downloaded the Camera RAW 4.4.1. Upgrade. I did what is written

              To install with Adobe Creative Suite 3 or Photoshop CS3:
              1. Exit Photoshop CS3.
              2. Open My Computer.
              3. Double-click Local Disk (C:).
              4. Navigate to: (Please read directory carefully)

              Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CS3\File Formats

              5. Move the existing Camera Raw.8bi plug-in to another location (for example, a new folder on your desktop). Ensure you keep this version in case you need to revert back.
              6. Copy the Camera Raw plug-in, Camera Raw.8bi, from the download into the same folder as in step 4.
              7. Launch Photoshop CS3 or Adobe Bridge.

              Note: If generic camera thumbnails appear in Adobe Bridge, follow these steps:

              1. Check to make sure the plug-in was installed in the correct directory in step 4 above.
              2. Start Bridge.
              3. Choose Tools > Cache > Purge Central Cache.

              but still nothing. So what else could i do?

                What software are you using to transfer the files?

                  This is an issue for Canon formatted DCIM folders on Windows...the mounting of the camera as a card reader will only see the JPEG files as readable files. You need to use an actual Card Reader to do copies to your local HD, not the camera.
