Raw not recognised in LR 6

I have LR6, standalone. I have had no problems editing RAW files in develop mode till today when I get this message, "The file is not recognised by the raw format support in Lightroom". This comes up with RAW files that I have been able to edit previously.
Any ideas?

Re: Raw not recognised in LR 6

I've had daft messages come out of Lightroom occasionally and have found it to be card problems.

Check the card is seated correctly in the reader.
If it is check if you can read it with Finder or Explorer, if you can then copy it to your desktop then try an import to Lightroom from there...

If the card reads OK in the camera but not on the computer buy a new un, and connect the camera to the computer using your USB cable and switch the camera to storage and you should be able to copy off the camera (a very expensive card reader)

Re: Raw not recognised in LR 6

Are you running on Apple or Windows? I seem to recall that Apple introduced a raw file interpreter into the OS at some point. If Adobe switched to using that rather than their own then maybe that is part of the problem. OTOH, Adobe pride themselves in their raw handler (ACR), so maybe not.

Thanks but nowt to do with the card. I cannot edit files that have already been edited in LR.

Apple. I may get in touch with Adobe.
Annoying that I am getting the same message even with files previously edited in LR.

Re: Raw not recognised in LR 6

Problem solved. I have two versions of LR on my Mac,(don't ask) version 6 and 6.14. Version 6 will not recognise Oly raw files, 6.14 does, so I just need to make sure I open the correct LR in future.
