Another method is to select all images in Bridge, open them in ACR, select all in the filmstrip and then use the Save Images button with the DNG format option:

Simple enough answers.  I remember trying this long ago and comparing blown up images and thinking there was some loss, but decided to try again.

First I had to find the DNR.  On Adobe's site, after searching I found and downloaded DNR 12.1.

I saved to desktop, opened and installed and ran.

As it seemed it was asking to do a whole folder of images and I just wanted to test, I made a subfolder in a desired target and copied several images to it. (Z7 RAW files, whose images I could see in File Explorer)

Back at the converter, I chose that subfolder as source and target.

I chose convert and "The source folder does not contain any supported camera raw files"

I tried extract.  "No embedded originals were extracted"

So what is wrong?
