When working on an (up-to-date) iMac in Bridge and opening a RAW file and making adjustments in camera raw, I click done and get the message Unable to save the raw conversion settings. Unknown error. I've used 'First Aid' on the iMac, shut the computer off and restarted and that fixed the problem temporarily but the issue resurfaces very shortly afterwards. The only apps I'm using is Bridge CC and Photoshop CC and occasionally Lightroom CC. All apps are up-to-date from the Cloud.

Did you reset the Bridge preferences as suggested?

Additional testing on this issue revealed the edited raw file is, in fact, being saved, however, I get the error message referenced above and the Bridge thumbnails are not updated. When opening the DNG file in Photoshop, the file does open in Camera Raw and the file reflects the adjustments I had previously made. Now when I go back to Bridge, the thumbnail does reflect the change. In reference to the possible solution submitted earlier, I do have read-write permissions enabled of the drive to where I have the photos stored and to where I am saving the (xmp) file. Sounds like it may be an issue in Bridge. Do you think uninstalling Bridge and then re-installing the app may help?

Hi - I've done everything suggested here (PC) and cannot fix this problem. Updated to Bridge CC 2019 and I still have the error on random jpgs.  I have full permissions on the entire PC, and not every file does this. Any other solutions?

I have reset the Camera Raw Preferences (as illustrated) multiple times.

I am in Bridge 2019, Mac OS Mojave, and the error keeps returning whether I save the Camera Raw Cache to my internal, or an external drive.

It is currently very exasperating to reset my defaults and now also having to recheck all my favorited presets each time. Does the index.dat file found in the Adobe Camera Raw Cache folder serve as the backup for all these settings?

This is nuts.

Hi,

I know your post was a couple of years ago now so you've probably already switched over to capture one and don't blame you.

I have just started using Photoshop CC and was having the same problem with raw conversions not being saved when I looking at the files in bridge.... I found a solution that is working for now -

Go into bridge- camera raw preference - performance- turn off graphics card..... it doesn't make sense but it worked. It now allows me to save raw conversions.

 Working in bridge is a vital part of my work flow and has been for the last 15yrs. I've had CS5 for the last 10yrs and it's been working like a dream.... a good reliable work horse.

 

im not very impressed with the photoshop CC so far. I've lost days of work time trying to figure this issue out... rang support many times and all support people had no idea and basically said must be an issue with my computer or permissions with card etc.... no help at all....

if this is the new photoshop, I'll be seriously looking into capture one too.
