See page 155 of the manual.

Do you have RAW or RAW + JPEG selected as the file format?

You cannot select RAW and RAW+JPEG. The HDR mode cannot be set if RAW or RAW+JPEG is set.

You said you had it set to RAW+mJPEG, which, based on what I read, is why it won't work.

^You seemed to found the solution.
The same page:
- You cannot select RAW and RAW+JPEG. The HDR mode cannot be set if RAW or RAW+JPEG is set.
Select only JPEG mode.

So the 6D won't give you the option to shoot in RAW and you save 3 RAW files in HDR Mode?

That is the feature for the 5DIII.

Yeah the 5D III definitely allows it. Just wanted to make sure the statement was true regarding the 6D

Thanks!
