G4/5 Mac users can no longer use Adobe DNG converter (last PPC version was 6.4).

Has version 6.4 stopped working?

I would like to continue conversion of CR2 and RW2 files to DNG so that they can be opened as RAW in Photoshop and tweaked there.

What is stopping you?

Utility programs I have seen simply convert the RW2 into TIFF or JPEG although some have 'tweaking' capability the controls are unfamiliar and I would still need to open in Photoshop.

You can open TIFF files in ACR

So if you convert your raw file to a 16-bit TIFF you can almost do everything you could with a raw file. The major thing missing is the demosaicing. If you want to take advantage of the latest and greatest in demosaicing then its time to replace your more than six year old computer.
