Make sure your CS3 is updated. You'll also want to check at Adobe's site to make sure CS3 even supports CR2 or RAW files from your type of camera.

why dont you copy the files from your card reader into a folder and batch them into jpeg format? then direct photoshop to the folder

Canon photo RAW CR2 File format | Extension .cr2
What's the point in shooting in RAW if you are just going to batch them into Jpeg? >_<"

You still need to view it and see if they are exposed correctly and do some editing before compressing a RAW into a Jepeg.

Have you tried doing a software update? Adobe Camera Raw Plugin-In X.X.X should be there. If not try running a google search for this: Adobe Camera Raw Plug-In 4.1.1

Download and install and see if it works.

Someone apparently had the same problem as you before. Link to the thread.
