After launching the program, click the Organizer button to start the Organizer (the replacement component of Elements for Starter Edition); it should auto discover the most recently opened album that Starter Edition had; it should import that catalog data into a new catalog for you, then you should see your stuff. If it tells you about having to import your photos to get started, then it's not 'seeing' the previous catalog, and you'll have to manually locate the catalog file. Give the provided instructions a try, and if that doesn't work, I can collect more help for you on how to locate the Starter Edition catalog file so you can 'feed' it into Elements.
Thanks for fast response.
No success. Could you indicate an other work around. Enclosing a snap shot

Were you able to resolve the problem? I am also having issues transfering my catalog from Photoshop Album to Elements 8. I was actually able to get the conversion process to start, but it stopped and gave me an error message saying something to the effect my file needs to be fixed. I followed the instructions for reconnecting and restoring, but I still can't convert my catalog. I have one more trick up my sleeve and if I am successful I will let you know everything I did.
I haven’t started the process yet as I am not able to open my album at the present time.. I need the unlock code and they have stopped sending them out.
Do you know can I do the transfer even if the album is locked?
I don't have a clue about that.
Well, then we have the same bad status. I have transferred my database file (*.psa) to Adobe and awaiting if they are able to convert it.
If you still have your 3.2 psa catalog in your "My Catalogs" folder, try
downloading PSE5 from here:
PSE5 should be able to find your catalog and you can convert it into PSE5.
If that doesn't work, it may be because you weren't able to run "reconnect
all missing files" in PSA3.2 before attempting the conversion. If all your
photos were still connected, this should work. Then you can open PSE8 and
convert PSE5 into PSE8. Do a "reconnect all missing files" in PSE5 before
you do the conversion. Even though all my files were connected when I
converted PSA2 into PSE5, PSE5 had about 30 unconnected photos.
Thank you so much for your advice, but the link
not work any more. Idea?
I'm copying John R. Ellis, believing he has the answer.
