Since my own camera is broken, I borrowed the 500D from my housemate. I shot a few photos in RAW, but my CS3 won't open them. I already googled for a plug-in, downloaded it, put it in the folder, but it didn't work.
Does anyone know which plug-in I need to be able to view my photos in RAW in CS3?

Support for the 500D was included in Adobe's Camera Raw 5.4 update. Unfortunately, Camera Raw 5.1 and up are not compatible with CS3 (only CS4).
If you want to use adobe products to convert the raw files from the T1i with CS3 (specifically Camera Raw) all you need to do is introduce another step in the process.
Take the files, use the most recent version of Adobe DNG Converter (5.5) and convert them to .DNG and then you can open them with Camera Raw in CS3. A litlle tedious, but won't affect the photos or anything.
edit: I see Royal beat me to it, but yeah, that's all you need to do.
