Maybe I dun understand wat it mean coz I m not really good in tis area. Can anyone here guide me or explain in a more simple way.
Thank you.

You need to install the latest Adobe camera RAW. However, I think the version of ACR that supports the D7000 is only version CS4 and newer, so you may need to upgrade.

An alternative is to download the Adobe DNG convertor - it will convert your .NEF to .DNG which your CS3 should be able to open without a problem.

This software will convert the .NEF files to .DNG, which is essentially just stripping the .NEF from all Nikon specific components and extracting the raw sensor data. This DNG is an vendor independant format which you can open with CS3. Your initial .NEF files will remain intact, you can save them for later if you want.
