How do I upload my Raw images to the Digital Camera Utility?

Help! This is my first time shooting Raw, and I am having trouble uploading anything. I have a Mac and previously my JPEG files would automatically open up in iphoto, however, even after installing the Digital Camera Utility 5, iphoto still tries to read the Raw files, then tells me it can't recognise them. How do I get them onto the new DCU software? ...or how do I get them into any other file on my PC to then be opened in DCU?

Just drag and drop them to a folder on your computer, then navigate to that folder from DCU and open the files there.
