Just an update on this problem.
After a reboot of the system, I opened some files in ACR. These were .NEF files taken
by my D80. I was able to save these to a new location. However, when I tried to open a
D7000 .NEF it would not allow me to define a new location to save. I could only save to
the same location. I then tried again to save some D80 files to a new location however this
time I could not. Seems that the D7000 generated files had "broken" this function.
Is there no one else with this issue? I am otherwise able to work with the files without problems
however having to save to the same location is a bit of a bother. Any feedback on this would be appreciated.
Just to be clear, is this what you are doing.
1. Mount the SD card with your computer (via a card reader, or connecting the camera to the computer?)
2. Navigate to the the files on your SD card with Bridge.
3. Selecting thumbnails of files on the card.
4. Using control+R or the Open in Camera Raw command to open the images in Camera Raw 6.3.
5. Clicking the Save Image (or Save Images) button in Camera Raw
6. Trying to select "Save in New Location" from the Destination combo box?
Or, are you doing something else?
If I did describe what you are doing, what happens if you copy the D7000 files off your SD card onto your hard drive before opening them in Camera Raw? Also, what happens if you open the files in Photoshop's Camera Raw dialog instead of Bridges (Use the "Open" instead of "Open in Camera Raw" command in Bridge)?

Hello David. Thank you very much for responding.
To answer your questions:
1). Yes. Mounting SD to computer via internal card reader.
2). Yes. Navigating via Bridge.
3). Yes selecting thumbnails on SD card images
4). Yes. Right clicking for open in CR or double clicking to open in PS CS5.
5). Yes clicking save image(s) button. When I do, I receive a "The file could not be created"
meassage in the status dialog.
6). Yes I am selecting "save to new location". Choosing the destination would always display the path
next to "Select Folder" button afterwards but not anymore. The only option that will display the path
is "Save in same location" which now appears to be the default.
Yes, I have copied the files to my hard drive. I have opened both CR from Bridge as well as Bridge to PS with
the same results. Another thing, I tried saving some Nikon D80 NEF files first thing this morning and it wouldn't
save to new location. So it appears that this is not D7000 specific.
I don't believe this is user error as I have processed tens of thousands of images similarly for the past few years.
The problem started when I installed ACR 6.3RC.
Again, thanks much for your response and any assistance you may offer.
Thanks for the extra info?
Have you checked to see if any of the hard drives you are using is, or very close to full? Check the the destination drive, the drive with Windows, whatever drive has your Camera Raw cache, if you're using more than one drive.
Thanks for the quick response.
All of my hard drives have at least 100GB free including the system drive which
is where the cache is.
I just upped the cache from 1gb to 3gb but same results. I then moved the cache to another drive
but same again.
I have the exact same problem with ACR 6.6. It will save ONLY in root drive directories (or the same folder).
