Default RAW vs Raw +

What's the difference between the two? I shot in RAW+ the other day but my Adobe CS2 wouldn't open the files. Why?

...you mean the difference in RAW and RAW+JPG ?

...in the latter case your camera will record a RAW file and a LargeFineJPG for each shot as separate files on your card, an 'IMG0001.JPG' and an 'IMG0001.CR2' file.

To open the CR2 files, you need to update to a version of AdobeCameraRAW that supports your camera, the latest version for CS2 available will do this, and can be downloaded for free at Adobe's, where you will also find the installation instructions

...hope this helps, if not, ask again with more details please

...*my* 0.02 worth...

Kindest regards!

The easiest way to update Adobe Camera Raw for CS2 is to go to Help > Updates... in Photoshop.
