    Go download a RAW plugin for your camera from Adobe's website.

    You probably need a newer version.

    Get the Camera Raw 3.6 update

    It should be sufficient for your usage.

    After downloading the zip file, use the operating system or a utility such as WinZip or PKZIP to extract the file's contents

    To install with Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0:

    1. Exit Photoshop Elements.
    2. Open My Computer.
    3. Double-click Local Disk (C).
    4. Navigate to: (Please read directory carefully)

    Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 4.0\Plug-Ins\File Formats

    5. Move the existing Camera Raw.8bi plug-in to another location (for example, a new folder on your desktop). Ensure you keep this version in case you need to revert back.

    6. Copy the Camera Raw plug-in, Camera Raw.8bi, from the download into the same folder as in Step 4.

    7. Launch Photoshop Elements

    You have not even mentioned which is your camera model...

    For example anything above Camera Raw 2.2 update supports D70 as mentioned in the link.

    And Camera Raw 3.7 update supports cameras up to D40...

    Look it up...

    Btw, the original plugin for RAW for photoshop 7 was meant to be a paid plugin. You have to pay to get it. Only with the emergence of CS did they include RAW support without having to pay extra as CS was priced much higher than 7.

    I would suggest that you look at Elements if you do not wish to pay the high cost for CS.
