ACR is a funny beast...
Basically Adobe release new versions of ACR and DNG converter to keep up to date with the latest cameras and their own RAW formats.
However, unlike the DNG converter, ACR is a plugin that runs within the Photoshop program. Adobe, in their infinite wisdom, tend to make the latest versions of ACR only compatible with the newest versions of Photoshop (both Elements & CS).
Why they choose to do this is a mystery to me...
The practical upshot is that older versions of Photoshop can only run the last ACR that was published while they were current (effectively anyway).
A complete list of cameras supported by ACR 5.5 is in
