    What OS and what version of ACR installed?  For ACR in PS click Help/about plugins/camera raw.

    Photoshop CS2 will never directly open a Canon EOS-50D raw file.  The raw files from every camera are different and your camera was designed after the Photoshop CS2 Camera Raw application stopped receiving updates.

     

    This list is pertinent:

    That said, there is a free solution that will allow you to open your images indirectly.

     

     

    • Whenever you have a folder full of raw 50D images run the DNG Converter on the folder to convert all the files to DNG format.  You will have to select the proper compatibility setting.

     

    • You can now open the DNG files with Photoshop CS2's Camera Raw converter.

     

    Just as an aside, the Camera Raw converter from the latest version of Photoshop delivers images of higher quality, so you may want to consider moving up to Photoshop CS6.  Unfortunately you will have to pay full price; there's no Photoshop CS2 -> CS6 upgrade discount.

    I had a strange thing happen recently where double clicking a 1DSMK3 RAW file was saying it was unsupported.   This file had been opened before, so I knew it had been OK at one time.  Eventually I opened it by right clicking and choosing Open with Photoshop.  The file associations were OK, so I have no idea what was going on.

    Any chance you have a different version of Camera Raw installed for 32 bit than 64 bit?

    I mean ' CR2 raw file from canon and i'm using Photoshop cs4.

     

    You should have no problem opening 50D images with Photoshop CS4.  What's not working?

     

    If you want to be able to double click the CR2 image, open Bridge, go into the File Type Associations preference, and change the application associated with CR2.

    Yes, according to the table 5.1 or later is needed.

     

    You'll want to update Camera Raw to 5.7.  If Help - Updates in the Photoshop menu won't work, try going to this site and downloading the Camera Raw 5.7 for your system type.  Follow Adobe's instructions...
