Photoshop Elements: Cannot open some Raw NEF files from the Organizer

I've encountered problems with not being able to open some NEF files in the raw editor. I have PSE 9 with all the latest updates. It used to work that when I was in the Organizer, I could open the raw editor directly from there. Now only 1 in 20 pictures of the same batch will work. I've reinstalled, updated versions and checked that I'm working in 8bt.

I can open one at a time directly from the editor however I have 1500 images to go through. Can the issue be with the size of the file?

Thanks

Hi,
Have you installed the latest Adobe Camera Raw updates ? You can do so by goin to Help>Updates and choose to install them. Does that help ?

Thanks for responding. As I mentioned, all Camera Raw updates were made so I have the right ones.

Since I posted, I believe the upload process corrupted some of the data hence the reason why some images open and others do not. I am thinking this has something to do with the .xmp

So my lesson is be very careful of transferring images from card to laptop to usb and then to my desktop for final processing. My workflow has to be tighten.

Thanks.

Not sure but this could be because of Editor Preferences getting soiled. You could try resetting them on your system. Hold down Ctrl+ALt+Shift when launching Photoshop Elements Editor . You will be prompted if you want to delete the settings files. Click on Yes and proceed.
