I don't think RAW photos were able to be processed until Photoshop's CS versions. I have CS3 and I can edit them there. If you aren't planning to upgrade, then you might try changing the file extension of one of the photos to .jpg. So, if a photo is called IMG352 just change its name to IMG352.jpg and see if your version of PS can use it then. Sometimes, you can trick the program! If that works, then go ahead and change them all. You also might consider purchasing the RAW plug-in if there is one compatible with PS7. It might be something you'll use and I am positive that it would be cheaper than upgrading!
I hope you can manage to get them somehow without spending a fortune on a professional!
