I have Vista, D90 camera and CS4 program. I have all the updates for camera raw, the old 4.6 etc, etc, etc. When I view my raw photos in Bridge, the pictures are very small and have a black border around them. They will not open is PS CS4 - it states it is not the correct type of document. In Bridge these is not data on the metadata! If I shoot raw and jpeg, all jpegs are fine and full metadata. What am I doing wrong????? Please help.

You may the updates but if ACR isn't working, they are not correctly installed. Download the most recent Camera Raw 5.5 update and run the installer (BTW, Camera Raw 4.6 is for Photoshop CS3 not CS4 and will do you zero good).
