Was the file you edited already a .dng file?  Or did you change the original file name from - say, xyz.jpg - to xyz.dng when saving?  I may be wrong but if that's what you're doing I don't think it can work that way.

I'm not qualified to help you with this.  Not my strong suit, hopefully someone jumps in here momentarily to help you out with it.  But I'm curious, what happens if you change the file extension from .dng to .nef?

What version of photoshop elements and version of windows are you using?

 

If in the photoshop elements editor you go to Help>About Plug-In>Camera Raw, what version does it say?
