How to convert data so GDAL can open ?

Hello World : ) !!! 
I am currently trying to run InVEST Version 3.2.0 Sediment Retention Model. When I input my Digital Elevation Model (Raster) , Rainfall Erosivity (Raster) , Soil Erodibility (Raster) , Land-Use/Land-Cover (Raster) the model states the input must be a raster GDAL can open. How can I convert my data to be a raster GDAL can open ? Or any thoughts why my data can not be open by GDAL ? 
Thank you in advance : ) !!

    Hi, that error is saying that the input file needs to be a raster.  I'm going to guess that you're trying to input ArcGIS rasters.  If so, you can drag and drop the top level directory of the raster OR if you're trying to browse to a file you can add the raw grid inside that usually has a name like 'w001001.adf'.  

    If none of that makes sense, can you give us some more details on the kinds of files you're trying to input into those fields?
