I understood the latest version of Lightroom supported the recent Sony A7 series, whose RAW files are Sony's own ARW files. I have the latest Lightroom but it will not read these files.

Here is a list of the Sony A7 series cameras that Lightroom supports, and the version of Lightroom required. The Lightroom versions are in the highlighted area.

If you are certain you have the appropriate version of Lightroom installed, then provide more information. Can your operating system browser see the raw files? Have they been downloaded to your hard drive? What operating system are you using? What is the exact version of Lightroom?

Try turning off gpu acceleration in Preferences->performance. This is not an inability to read the file but a graphics card driver issue.

Reading image files and displaying them in the LR windows are 2 totally different things.

Your install of LR does READ the files fine as you have imported them.

Displaying them in the Develop module is different.

As above turn off the GPU option and test.
