Major camera manufacturers each use a proprietary file format for their RAW image setting on their cameras. They always provide a proprietary piece of software with every new camera so RAW images can be viewed and exported. The .ARW file extension suggests that the files were created on a Sony camera. Try Sony's website for conversion software.

This could work.

I have no clue. Haven't touched Linux in a dozen years. At least one person had success installing Image Data Converter on Linux.

...in 2008!

Is this conversion something you need to do on a regular basis or is it a one and done?

...and it's important to you that all of your photographs are shot in RAW mode on the camera? Are you a professional photographer?

I understand what did you mean :)
Probably, there is no loss in quality if I switch back to JPEG.

The reality is, there is always some loss of quality with JPEG compression. But unless you are a pro photographer and/or need to enlarge your photographs to poster size, your camera's highest resolution JPEG setting will be more than adequate. I never take my camera off of medium fine mode and I often need to shoot for paying jobs.
