I am shooting with a Canon eos 550D in CR2 (raw) files but I can't open them with Photoshop Elements 8. I've tried downloading the raw zip packages from adobe but so far nothing seems to work (like this one http://www.adobe.com/support/download...).

Would anyone know what I need to download to open the CR2 files?

See this faq in the User to user forum:

You should be able to upgrade your ACR version to 6.2. while your 550D requires 6.1.
