A lot more info is needed before we can help.
What version of Photoshop? 10.0.1?
What version of ACR? 4.4.1?
What version of Bridge? 188.8.131.52?
What Nikon camera model? Each model produces a different flavor of ".nef" files.

Could be you need another ACR version [newer cams aren't supported by
Cannot remember ATM, but do we need Nikon's codec installed to see
NEFs? I don't think so, just a notion.
Writing and Imaging
You need the Nikon NEF Codec & Windows Live Photo Gallery, or the Microsoft RAW Image Thumbnailer & Viewer to preview in Windows Explorer.
If you can't see your NEF in Bridge, you may need to upgrade Camera Raw to the latest version (assuming it is supported).
If you've done all that, you may have a problem with the Camera Raw plug-in installation (search this forum for solutions).
Thanks very much for all your kind help. I finally figured what's wrong. It was pure operator mistake . When I upgrade ACR, intead of deleting the older version, I changed its name & left it in the directory and that confused the system. Now I am OK.
Again , thank you.
Have had no problem with D200 or D70 or D80 but, I am having difficulty (i.e. I can't open) NEF files (Raw) shot on a Nikon D300 using CS2 Bridge/Photoshop (Mac OS X - 10.4.11) and the thumbnails don't show in Bridge - but they do in Finder.
Is this a simple matter of an upgrade to CS3 required? I was holding out for CS4 but, if needs must...
Your D300 came out after Adobe stopped updating Camera Raw for CS2. But if you want to wait for CS4, in the interim you can use the current version of the DNG converter to create Digital negative copies of your raw images. And those can be opened in Camera Raw for CS2.
Many thanks Jim.
You can also download the latest Camera Raw/DNG-converter combination (the one meant for CS3) and use the DNG-converter to convert your NEF's to DNG format, which in turn can be read by your CS2 version of Camera Raw.
Ah, thanks Rob.
I've just purchased Aperture 2 to overcome the problem. Never mind, I've been looking for an excuse to play with Aperture.
