So, exactly WHERE is the Camera Raw plug-in located? Did you use Adobe Updater or manually download, unzip and install any Camera Raw updates yourself? What version of Camera Raw is installed?
Note that the 40D enabled what Canon calls sRAW, a smaller format of raw than the normal CR2 and that version of Canon's raw file was only supported as of Camera Raw 4.2. The current version, is 4.3.1.
If you can't open 40D raws, the odds are real good that you either didn't properly install the plug-in or that your shooting sRAW and don't have the most recent version installed.
Tom ... Most problems are due to putting the new ACR plugin in the wrong place. Therefore , we'll need to know exactly how you updated.
A coupla things to try before coming back;
(1) Look for the ACR version installed via 'CS3=>Help=>plugins' (... if it reports v4.3 let us know ... if it reports 2 versions, let us know that too, and how you installed v4.3).
(2) Try installing via 'CS3=>help=>updates'
(3) See the installation instructions here:
(3) Read the following thread (altho much of the beginning posts are about CS2, but I don't believe it makes a difference -- ie, replace instances of "CS2" with "CS3").

I have done the auto update from within my photoshop program at the help drop down menu as well as manually several times. When I manually put it in I have followed the adobe directions of removing the raw plug in from the file formats folder and placing the downloaded Camera Raw.8bi file into that folder. I still can't open the raw images from my Canon 40d from photoshop. The bridge also only shows cs2 file icons as opposed to thumbnails of the images which it does do correctly on my other windows and mac machines.
It shows camera raw plug-in 4.2. Could it be that I am not getting a good download when I update? When I check for updates via the help menu it says there are no new updates available for me. Should I try to do another update from the link above?
Go to the Camera Raw product page and download the current version 4.3.1.
Maybe I was the only one confused and figured out the below should be CS3/Help/About Plugins/Camera Raw. It shows 4.3. CS3/Help/Updates, doesn't update ACR to 4.3.1. Why?
Update: By the way, I successfully followed Adobe's download and installation instructions so 4.3.1 is correctly installed but I'm wondering why the Update didn't automatically install 4.3.1.
> Look for the ACR version installed via 'CS3=>Help=>plugins'.
The automatic updater for Camera Raw 4.3.1 is not online yet. The only way to get 4.3.1 currently is to download it manually.

Thomas ... (with all due respect) because installing the update isn't as straight-forward as many users would like (eg, despite what is easy for most of us, see the many posts here), shouldn't the automatic updater be prioritized?

The automatic updater has not been working properly for a long time. (Not just related to Camera Raw.) I believe it is the responsibility of a separate part of Adobe.
Conventional wisdom says turn it off and download the updates from the appropriate part of the Adobe site. There are always clear instructions available.
The Adobe Updater has been broken in one way or another, off and on, for many years. I stopped relaying on it.
The updater worked for me for CS3. Not so for Elements 6.0. ACR is located in 2 distinct folder locations for these two products. Why, I don't know...
Manual install works fine.
