"If you are sure you’ve correctly installed the style, and they are still not showing up you will need to rebuild your database. This is done simply, so Photoshop Elements will recognize you newly installed items. To do this, delete the mediadatabase.db3 file which will be found in the following path:
C: > Documents and Settings> All Users > Application Data > Adobe > Photoshop Elements >YourVersion> Locale > en_us. In this folder you’ll see a file called
In Vista/Windows 7
C: > ProgramData> Adobe > Photoshop Elements > YourVersion > Locale > en_us. In this folder you’ll see a file called MediaDatabase.db3,
right click on this file and choose “Delete” from the pop up menu and restart Photoshop Elements. This may take a few moments, but once it’s done you should be able to see the new items you installed." HTH
There is also a post here for installing styles in PSE 10 on a MAC: Post #27

HI, I've been wanting to install all those goodies also but am afraid. It sounds straight forward. Will watch you and see how it goes! Good Luck.

Thinking if the default loads then the problem is not the Mediadatabase file.
The metafile is an XML file that is included with some styles but not many. You use it to rename the styles so you can group them in your own way.
I use it to group all my SG styles by adding SG_ before the name.
But I had trouble loading one style. The reason I found out, was one letter wrong in the XML file. Can this be to any help?
