Adobe DNG Converter [used with Camera Bits Photo Mechanic]

Hi, I don't know if I'm using the right section to ask for help, but I'll try!
My problem is not with Photoshop nor with the associated plug-ins (such as Camera Raw).
Instead I have a file conversion problem with Adobe DNG Converter. I usually use this utility associated with the Camera Bits Photo Mechanic software (it is a software that allows you to quickly view a large amount of raw photos in order to select them: https://home.camerabits.com/ ).
Using Photo Mechanic I go to view raw files (photos taken with a Sony camera in .arw format). These photos are in B/W since I shoot directly with this profile set in the camera. However, the B/W one is only a preview, because the original raws contain the color photo.
My goal is to have these raw photos converted and displayed in color through Adobe DNG Converter.
The problem is precisely in this passage! The software does not convert raw files to color.
However, this problem only occurs with two of my computers (Windows 10 intel i7 PC - Macbook pro 14 M1), however with other PCs (Macbook pro 13 intel i5 - Windows 10 intel i9 PC) it works fine.
I have already heard from the Photo Mechanic support center and they told me that the problem is related to the Adobe DNG Converter software.
For this reason I ask for help in understanding how to solve this B/W to color conversion problem.
I hope I was clear in explaining the problem and I hope someone can help me solve it.
Thank you!

Ciao, non so se sto utilizzando la sezione giusta per chiedere aiuto, ma ci provo!

Il mio problema non è con Photoshop ne con i plug-in associati (tipo Camera Raw).

Invece ho un problema di conversione file con Adobe DNG Converter. Utilizzo solitamente questa utility associata al software Camera Bits Photo Mechanic (è un software che consente di visualizzare velocemente una grande quantità di foto in raw per poterle selezionare: https://home.camerabits.com/ ).

Utilizzando Photo Mechanic vado a visualizzare dei file raw (foto scattate con camera Sony formato .arw). Queste foto sono in B/W visto che scatto direttamente con questo profilo impostato nella camera. Tuttavia quella in B/W è solo un'anteprima, perchè i raw originali contengono la foto a colori.

Il mio obbiettivo è quello di fare in modo che queste foto raw siano convertite e visualizzate a colori attraverso Adobe DNG Converter.

Il problema è proprio in questo passaggio! Il software non converte a colori i file raw.

Tuttavia questo problema si presenta solo con due dei miei computer (PC Windows 10 intel i7 - Macbook pro 14 M1), invece con altri PC (Macbook pro 13 intel i5 - PC Windows 10 intel i9) funziona benissimo.

Ho già sentito il centro di supporto di Photo Mechanic e mi hanno detto che il problema è relativo al software Adobe DNG Converter.

Per questo motivo chiedo aiuto per capire come poter risolvere questo problema di conversione da B/W a colori.

Spero di essere stato chiaro ad esprorre il problema e spero che qualcuno possa aiutarmi nel risolverlo.

Grazie!

Does the Adobe DNG Converter work if you use it without Camera Bits Photo Mechanic, as per the instructions here?

Unfortunately not!

I tried to do the conversion with Adobe DNG Converter without Photo Mechanic but the result doesn't change.
