I have the new Sony A77. I tried to save a DNG in Camera Raw but it never finishes the save. It is just left "hanging". When I try to use the cancel save feature in causes PS to crash. I've trid this several times and it always has the same problem. I have tried saving an image from the Sony A 100 and there is no problem. Therefore I think the problem is related to how PS?Camera Raw is handling the new Sony A77

Do you have a sample image to experiment with--to help narrow down if it is a widespread problem or not?

I just tried saving a sample A77 ARW as a DNG from ACR 6.7. RC and don't have any problems on my Windows 7 64-bit computer.

Specifics as to computer and versions of Photoshop and ACR would also be helpful, along with exact options used in ACR's Save Image... dialog.

Firstly, I just retried saving a DNG in CR and it worked fine this time. I'm wondering if it may have needed a reboot after I updated CR for theA77. I guess it still worked fine with the A100 because that worked OK on the earlier version of CR.

In case anyone else experiences this here are my specifics:

Macbook Pro, Snow Leopard, CR 6.6 (I guess this is the latest version for Macs) CS 5 12.04 64-bit.

Thanks Steve for the feedback. That was what had me try again...
