I use Lightroom 3.6 and I just imported some old RAW files into it.

I can use the basic noise reduction tools but the Details and Contrast tools are disabled.

How can I get them enabled? The same camera was used on these old RAWs that I use today, so that isn't it...

Ok, I just solved it.

Go to the Settings Menu, select Process, and if it is Process 2003 you convert to Process 2010.

You can read about Process 2010 here
