Before trying to see if you can convert to a TIFF, see if there is anyway to convert your file to a DNG, better known as a "digital negative." It behaves very much like a RAW file should in PS. I have the same problem you do with my ".CR2" files and have to convert them to a ".DNG" in order for them to work in PS. Do a google search and see if someone has a free RAW to DNG converter for your file type or camera make.

Now, once you get a DNG and do all of your necessary editing of the photo, make sure to save a copy of your newly edited photo as a TIFF (before you sharpen and resize). That way you always have a high quality file that you make prints out of and have published if need be.
