Some questions:
- are your RAW's DNG or PEF?
- what version of Photoshop/ACR are you using?
- what version of Picasa?

And can you open the RAW's using Pentax Digital Camera Utility 5 software that was supplied with the camera?

Update your Adobe camera raw or DNG converter for CS6 to the latest version which should be 8.6. I am not sure if CS6 will take that one but it will 8.5.
