Are there any good ways to handle NEF files from a D80 in Photoshop Elements 3?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Download the Adobe Camera Raw 3.6 plugin. You'll see instructions telling you what folder to copy it to on the download page:

Windows:

Mac:

Well, I've downloaded the Adobe Camera Raw.8bi file dated 10/23/2006 and placed it into the specified location for Photoshop Elements 3.0.

When I try to open a NEF file (either from Elements directly or from Nikon View (version 6.2.7), the Nikon NEF plug-in (Nikon NEF Plug-in.8bi dated 9/9/2005) brings up the RAW adjustments dialog box, but the image never show up in the "Preview image area". (The dialog box does recognize that the NEF file is from a D80.)

In either case, if I eventually click the OK button, I get a dialog box from Elements telling me "Could not complete your request because of a disk error".

From my experiences developing software, I suspect this is one of those error messages that doesn't mean exactly what it says, but I don't have a clue as to what is happening.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Problem Solved!

rjseeney suggested I remove the Nikon NEF plug-in from the Photoshop program folder, and the problem went away.

Now I can use Nikon View to see all of the parameters associated with the image, then edit the image in Elements.

I can also open the image directly in Elements without going through Nikon View, so everything seems to be working as it should.
