It works for me only if I do not include the fle extension .pdf, i.e.,

\includegraphics{"../Dissertation Materials/pictures/BeliefReX.pdf"}

results:

! LaTeX Error: Unknown graphics extension: .pdf".

try:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}

\includegraphics{"../Dissertation Materials/pictures/BeliefReX"}
\end{document}
