I've downloaded 9.0 (?) several tines and it claims to have installed successfully but when I quit and reopen Photoshop CS6 extended Camera raw is still not available in the file (open) menu.

Maybe I'm misinterpreting what you are saying. But you don't "open" Camera Raw. You open a raw file, either from Photoshop or from Bridge, and the file type will open the plug-in.

No what I meant is that I downloaded Camera Raw and was told it had installed successfully, but if i want to open an image in Camera Raw in Photoshop CS6 extended it should appear in the File menu under one option to "open" and it appears nowhere on the list as an option.When I open the application I cant't even find any evidence of where it did install. It's not in any of my folders inside of Photoshop either so I don't know where it went and, well, there you have it!

I re-ead what you said and my first response doesn't make any sense. I thought I've seen a listing in the file menu that says "open in Camera Raw" and I don't see it in mine.

So if you're saying I have to have had something shot in camera raw first in order to open it in camera raw then maybe that's why I'm having this issue.

I'm a designer not a photographer so may i should have my photographer friend send me something that was shot in camera raw to see if I can access it that way(?)

If you use Bridge you should be able to open your JPEG or TIF images in Camera Raw. Just right click on the image in Bridge. The option is right near the top.
