Importing photo files from hard drive (previously uploaded from Nikon camera in RAW/NEF) to photoshop elements 9.  Although photos are on hard drive and I can access them through other software, photoshop says no files exist.  Any suggestions?

You mention NEF raw files, I assume you have no problem to open jpegs.

Are you using the editor:
If so, can you use the 'File >> Open' command and browse to your NEF files?
Are you using the organizer:
Do you use the 'Import from files or folders' command?

In any case a screenshot or the precise error message could help.

If it's a problem with your NEF files,  more information would be needed:
- The model of your NIkon camera
- Which 'other' software can open and convert the NEFs
- The version of the Nikon Transfer software used to download the NEFs
- Did the importing work before?
