If you want to use Canon's editing software, you can, otherwise you can do much better (in my opinion) with PhotoShop, Paint Shop Pro, or other software that handles RAW. If you plan on connecting the camera to the computer, I believe you need to install a few files for the computer to full recognize it. But a better solution to get images off the CF's is a card reader. It's faster than the camera hookup, etc and will save you tons of time.
How many images are on the card? And what happens when you try to see them on the computer? Is the card recognized?
