Need help to convert RAW into DNG

CS4 DNG converter ( plug in 5.7) does not convert ARW files into DNG from A35. It does convert JPGs though. What could be wrong?

You probably need a newer DNG converter as CS4 is older than the A35 so the DNG convertor may not recognise the files. Download the latest DNG converter from Adobe, (they are free), and try it again.

Tom, 5.7 was the latest that works with CS4 according to the Adobe website. Is it still possible to download the latest converter and make it work?

I guess I could update CS4 to the latest version first and then update the plug in.

Adobe make a free standalone DNG converter that you can use. http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/extend.displayTab2.html

As Dusty says, 5.7 is the latest version of ACR that you can use with CS4, but the DNG converter is completely independent of Photoshop and ACR and is a stand-alone tool. Go to here to download a windows version of v6.7.

Thank you , Tom and Dusty. I will try to download it tonight. I got my first SLR camera 3 months ago, and now want to try to edit raw files first time and get a perfect photograph finally.:::)))

So the converter 6.6 and 6.7 that support my camera can work with my CS4 and are free to download. I do not have to upgrade to and use CS6 with the converter 6.6 . I guess now I got it right.
