I don't remember what version of ACR was the earliest one to support your camera.
If your camera is not supported by ACR 3.7, then you must convert your raw files to DNG files first. For that purpose, you need to download and run the free Adobe DNG Converter version 5.2. It's a stand-alone application that does not need any version of Photoshop to run at all, so it doesn't have to match your version of ACR.
ACR 3.7 is definitely the last version that will run in CS2.
OK, this tech note http://www.adobe.com/go/kb407111, says that support for the EOS 40D was added for the first time in ACR 4.2.
That means you will never be able to open your CR2 files in Photoshop CS2 directly. You must convert them to raw DNG files with the free Adobe DNG Converter version 5.2 as described above.
Perhaps that tech note could be added to the FAQs?
Thank you for your fast reply - I do have the DNG convertor loaded and I did use it just now and I can enter the processing now - that's great! Does that mean, from now on, I need to do that first each time I want to process new RAW files? Is there nowhere that it can be a built in automated step?

Upgrade to CS4.

DNG Converter. There's no such word as convertor in the English language. ;)
Thank you Ramon for the help with this and also my spelling ;)
I'll look into getting the new version of CS4.
Leanne, the spelling correction arose not from pedantry, but from the fact that many folks complain about not being able to find the converter because they typed convertor into their search field.
Ramón, thanks, Doing it right now, my only concern is that I wonder if this document will be updated for future versions, or if it will be a different one...
