How are you trying to use them in Photoshop?
You won't be able to just "open" the files, since they're not image files designed to be opened directly into PS.

You can import the brush (.abr files) through the brush presets panel flyout menu, or through the Preset manager in Edit > Presets > Preset Manager
In either location, click Load, then point to the location you have your brushes stored
