    hi all
    I have a Fujifilm S5 Pro. I can transfer every image except RAW images which wont transfer to the PC even though they are on the camera.

    Went in to MY COMPUTER and located them though external camera device but can't open them. They seem to be RAF Files

    Do i need a certain programme to open these RAF files?

    Can anyone be kind enough to point me in the right direction?

    I don't know anything about your camera but would imagine it came with software to open and save your raw files. If not there are a number of other programs that can open them. If you have Photoshop or Elements the minimum version required to open you files are Photoshop CS3 or Elements version 5 as these support ACR version 4.1 which is the required minimum.

    I have a web page that lists the currently supported cameras for all versions of ACR here.

    I've got Photoshop CS, version 8.0...Don't think it supports ACR Version 4.1

    I didn't get any software with the camera but it seems now I should have done. :-(

    Is there any webpage out there that's perhaps got download to help me out on this? There must be some kind of RAW viewing programme available to download on the net?

    Have you tried downloading via a card reader?

    Then I suggest you contact the person you bought the camera from, if I remember correctly you said it was 2nd hand.

    If you can see the files through My Computer, presumably you can move/copy them as with any other file on the computer. Your problem sounds like having no software to read and display the contents of the RAW rather than not being able to transfer them.

    Not expensive. £10 or £15. But that doesn't sound like your problem. It's not having the correct software to open the RAW files.

    You could always download the free Adobe DNG Converter which should convert the RAF files to DNG which should be compatible with PS CS.

    The idea of a card reader is that it plugs into your PC/Mac via a USB port and you then put your memory card in that rather than attach the camera to the PC. The card/reader will be seen as another disk on your PC and you can drag the files to your hard disk with explorer or use the wizard if it pops up. Once the raw files are on your PC then the Fuji software should open them. You can get them as cheap as £10 or so.

    It isn't altogether clear whether your problem is that you can't transfer the RAW files from your camera to computer or whether you can't open them when they are in the computer.

    I can't imagine it being the former. All you have to do is drag and drop them. That should work regardless of file type. If as is more likely, you can't open them that is a software problem. You need Fuji's software to open their RAW files and convert them to TIFFs or JPEGs. If you haven't got it try here:

    Sorry I should have been more clearer. Yes you are right..that is my problem.

    Large format....I think that link as well as the large file I just downloaded is an Updater only...I think you need to install the software disk which i haven't got first then you can download them updaters to update it.

    That's pretty much standard practice, stops piracy (to some extent)

    Is there any chance you can talk to the previous owner of the camera to see if they have the software?

    Then... unless you want to buy Adobe Lightroom or something else you might be up the creak!

    Sorry :(

    Probably a good idea to wait until this evening to see if anyone else has any suggestions.

    Just downloaded the DNG Converter and it converted the RAF files to DNG but still no joy :(

    My Photoshop CS is not recognising this DNG format.

    Thanks for your help anyway matey, appreciate it.
    I'm sure there has got to be another simple way round this though. :D

    What version of the ACR plug-in is installed in CS? I think it has to be at least v2.3 in order to be able to recognise DNG files.
