Hello, there is CR2 and CR2...
What camera are you using?
Here is the list of cameras supported by ACR(Adobe Camera Raw), and the first version that opens them:

And this list shows that you can install Camera Raw 6.2 in Photoshop Elements 8:

Check if your camera is supported in ACR 6.2. if not you might need to update to a newer version of Photoshop Elements.

If Canon, like Pentax, or Leica and others, supported the DNG format, you would not have to update. They decided to use a proprietary format instead...
