CR2's are the raw files captured by your camera.
IMG's are JPG's versions of CR2's converted by your camera.

That is because you set that both CR2 (RAW files) and JPG's
(images) are to be written on the card for every SR.

Depending on your operating system, they should preview, you can use Photoshop, Lightroom or the Canon software that came with your camera to view them. You'll probably find them a bit lack lustre in comparison to the JPG files, but they designed for processing, think of them as digital negatives.
