DPP is the photo processing software that comes with the camera. And you can download the latest version, even if you have an older camera. It will convert the raw file.

BTW, what camera do you have? Whether or not PSE 6 reads your raw files depends on whether your camera is sufficiently newer than the software. So your friend probably simply has an older Canon (or a newer version of PSE, 9 is the latest). The latest, and final, version of Adobe Camera Raw for PSE 6 is Camera Raw 5.5, which supports the Canon 1Ds3, 5D2, 50D, and T1i (500D), and older cameras in each of those product lines. So a free upgrade may help you, may not.
