Why is my lightroom . classic on my windows machine can see and work with the files from the Canon eos r which are cr3 files,  but the brand new camera I just bought the Canon Eos R6 which is also cr3 files lightroom cannot see these files.

 

I understand it is all subscription now with Adobe, and yea eventually I will have no other choice but to buy a new computer and upgrade to the latest version of PS and LR, but didn't believe there would be a problem since my LR could read and work with the files from the Eos R which are cr3 files, the very same as the R6.

Anyone shed some.light on this.

The R and the R6 require different minimum versions of Lightroom Classic and Camera RAW.  The .cr3 files are different.
