Sony Image Data Converter opened and automatically associated with Adobe Photoshop.  But I cannot see how to associate the Sony ARW file type with Lightroom.  Any help out there?

Tried that immediately.  Association was automatically with the Sony-supplied app "Image Data Converter".  But attempting to use both Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC fail.  Both seem to require plug-ins, which I can't figure how to get from Adobe.

I might be wrong, but I don't think  you can associate  Lightroom that way. The Lightroom program does not open images. But rather, it opens a database. The way it displays images is through the database technology, and the way to associate an image with the database is to go through the import process in Lightroom.

Jim, thanks again for your information and time.  I'll call Adobe during their regular business hours, and I'll post the corporate answer here (in case anyone else has the same questions).

I import my (Nikon) RAW files into Lightroom, creating a Lightroom file for the particular event.  I then select and manipulate the "best" photos for printing (or other use); some selected prints can be further manipulated in Photoshop from within Lightroom.  BUT the (Sony) ARW files don't open in Lightroom.  To use them in Lightroom I would have to open in Photoshop, convert to JPEG, & only then import into Lightroom. Ridiculous unnecessary waste of time.

If the raw files won't open in Lightroom then there are two possible reasons. 1) you are using an older version of Lightroom that doesn't support your camera. 2) your camera is so new that support has not yet been added to the most current version of Lightroom.

If you are using an older version of Lightroom and don't want to upgrade then you can use the DNG converter. That will create a raw file that will open in your older version.

If you are using a very new camera then patience on your part is required. Every camera model must have support added to Lightroom.

What version of Lightroom are you using? What camera model took the images?
