Peter,

You need camera raw to work on RAW files. Version 7.0 is prior to most RAW formats. You need at least version CS2 to utilize the Adobe Camera Raw application, although I would suggest at least CS3 as it has several advantages in dealing with photography files. If you are of the school that all your work is to be done in the camera, or at least most of it, then I would also check out Adobe Lightroom 2.0. It deals with RAW files and is especially helpful if you are trying to keep track of all your photos too.
