I've been using Photoshop CS4, Bridge and ACR for about a year. I was sold on the Adobe rationale for converting to DNG and have been doing so using the convenient check box on the Photodownloader screen. It has worked fine the entire time - until now. Suddenly that no longer works: although the DNG conversion box is checked Bridge only downloads the raw NEF files and reports at the end that it the DNG conversion failed on all of the photos that were downloaded.
So - here is what I've tried:
- Rebooted my Windows XP computer ( dual core - which has 4GB of RAM). Same results - no conversion
- Reinstalled Photoshop CS4 - and everything on the disk. Same results - no conversion
- Downloaded version 5.7 of Camera Raw (just found out there is a 5.9). However that seems to only update camera profiles - and doesn't change the version that displays on the Camera Raw preferences menu: 126.96.36.199. Same results - no conversion.
- Finally I downloaded the free DNG converter. It works, but I would much prefer to have the download program work
Any clues to solving this will be greatly appreciated.
…version 5.7 of Camera Raw (just found out there is a 5.9)…
… the version that displays on the Camera Raw preferences menu: 188.8.131.52…
That proves you did not install 5.7 correctly and you failed to remove the old 5.0 plug-in.
