NEX-3n ARW file and Lightroom 4.3

I downloaded a ARW file (2.2 format) made with the NEX-3n from Imaging Resource to play around.

Lightroom 4.3 cannot open this file. My questions are:

- is it a fact that Lightroom 4.3 does not support the Nex-3n or an ARW file?

- read somewhere that it would be possible that Lightroom could convert the ARW file into DNG (I tried this on Lightroom 4.3 but failed) Could someone explain the workflow in detail?

- is there another way to convert this ARW file into a DNG file?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Maybe you need LR 4.4?

Thanks, but in 4.4 the Nex-3N is not mentioned.

Maybe there is another way to convert these ARW files (2.2 format) into DNG files?

Download the latest DNG  V 7.2 converter from

www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=106&platform=Windowsn

Its use does involve slightly more work but not much & LR 4.3 can use the DNG files quite well.
