    G5 suddenly does not recognize NEF or Nikon D300 Plug in


      All of a sudden the Plug in for processing and viewing Raw (NEF) images is no longer working on my CS3 or Mac Mini
      > I have an older G5 tower and we upgraded to Leopard ( won't take Snow) and a Mini MAC upgraded to Snow leopard.
      > Adobe will NOT help us since they no longer support CS3 and we have downloaded and reinstalled CS3 again and every known plug-in
      I do not want the DNG converter work around or use the Nikon software or Lightroom...I work in bridge with clients and assistants and up until last week everything worked!    ... I do have  a New D300 S and know the CS3 will not recognize these files which actually is unfair... I am frustrated!

      the only things that changed were I upgraded my operating systems and Migrated stuff to my New IMAC which is running CS4 BEAUTIFULLY

      > thanks

          If your camera was supported on your old CS3 installation but isn't now, then you need to update your camera-raw to the newest version appropriate to CS3, which is ACR 4.6.


          You can confirm the version of your current ACR by doing Help / About Plugsin... / Camera RAW


          You can get the most current version by using the drop-down list at the top of this page:
