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?

Well , such situation appers after each time I shot with my camera and copy that to computer.
So you may imagine the importance of the task.

...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.
