Default Incorrect colours in Photoshop CS5

So it seems that photoshop is confusing violet and blue when editing raw files from my camera. I've tried messing w/ the colour profiles but it didn't do a thing. If anyone has a suggestion, let me know.

The first pics is how it should look. I had to save it as a jpg in iPhoto first, then resize it w/ Photoshop.

And this pic is what happens when I open the raw directly in to Photoshop. Haven't edited the photo in anyway.

Try this:
1. Go to Edit > Color Settings
2. For RGB, select Adobe RGB (1998)
3. For CMYK, select US Web Coated (SWOP) v2
4. Gray and Spot, use Dot Gain 20%

or

view -> proof setup -> monitor RGB

Neither did anything. It can't be a color calibration issue since it works fine w/ JPEG. It seems to be reading the colours wrong from the raw camera data for some reason.

Try something other than photoshop. Try lightroom if you can?
