PSE for windows? (since you speak of .8bi files)
Usually, one tries to purge the offending thumbnails, to have ACR recreate them.
After searching and searching these forums I found that RAW files have trouble on newer multi-core computers. I followed the directions there to only utilize one of the CPU cores and rebuilt the thumbnails. Everythings seems fine now.
Very strange that Adobe doesn't have software that works properly on multi-core CPU computers. Apparently even their latest version of PSE does the same thing.
Since few folks here are familiar with Elements, it's prudent to point out that the problem DL500 references applies exclusively to Photoshop Elements, and specifically to the Windows versions only, and it arises only with certain machines, not with all newer boxes.
Macs are not in any way affected, nor is the full version of Photoshop.
As an aside, I'm in the process of obtaining a refund for my recently purchased copy of PsElements 6 for Windows from Adobe.
Anyone who owns a halfway decent camera and is shooting raw, should really upgrade to CS3. ACR is massively, woefully crippled when hosted by PsElements, and you are simply not getting the most out of your images if you run ACR in Elements.
There are many other limitations in Elements, but ACR is the relevant topic in this forum.
