I had problems with my Canon 1D Mii on a recent shoot. I was shooting on RAW + small jpg mode and on some images I only got jpg and not the RAW. Also, the camera was making weird sounds like a major slow shutter sounding like a 1/2 sec shutter sound rather than 1/125 sec that I was shooting at.

Try a factory reset through your menu settings (if you can get to it) or remove the batteries and any date/time battery for a day or so and see if it resets. If not and you can access the menu, get the latest firmware from Canon's website and do an upgrade or reinstall.
Although your EOS 600D does not support digital zoom, while shooting, the same effect can be reached when the picture is already on the memory card. If you want to zoom in later (Crop) please shoot in RAW (or RAW + JPG) Only then all details will be preserved. Later you then can crop the part you wanted to have in the first place. I know your camera can crop the pictures you want to print from the camera. I'm not sure you also can edit RAW pictures and later save them (cropped) as a jpg.
The question in the title and the first sentence imply to me that you have confused manual mode and RAW format.
Title: "Why does my brand new Canon 6D freeze when shooting in RAWD freeze when shooting in RAW"
First sentence: "My brand new Canon 6D freezes when I try to shoot in manual."
Manual mode means you are responsible for all of the settings related to exposure (aperture, ISO, and shutterspeed). RAW is a specific file format to save the photo. They are independent of each other.
My guess is that in manual mode you have the shutterspeed set to the maximum of 30 seconds. The camera isn't going to automatically adjust it for you in manual mode. If you're new to DSLRs, start with Ae (Aperture priority) or Tv (Shutter priority). In Ae mode, you control the aperture and the camera will select the shutterspeed. In Tv mode, you select the shutterspeed and the camera selects the aperture for you. Start off with Auto ISO. This will help you learn what combinations of settings work well together.
The first thought I had come to mind was the shutter has failed but, the Canon 1D MK II shutter is capable of 150,000 actuation. If you feel this is not possible then another thing you may want to look into is the memory card needing to be cleared of pictures and formatted in the camera, always format your memory cards in the camera. The Canon 1D MK II has two memory card slots it is possible to have one card undersized and it's run out of space, the camera will not automatically shift to the unused card it needs to be done manually through the small screen on the back. This just happened to me while in a portrait shoot the battery died to the point it wouldn't even show the setting on the top LCD screen or the viewfinder. I replaced the battery and continued to shooting. The camera had been set on RAW but after the battery failure it began shooting RAW+ s jpg. If you had the camera set for jpg images and the battery failed as it did mine then it's entirely possible that the camera defaulted to small jpg files. Okay last suggestion and possible the most important. The Canon 1D MK II with original firmware installed is capable of working with a 4gig memory card Compact Flash or SD, if you have installed a larger card and just attempted to shoot with it without formatting, the camera will refuse to cooperate. If this is the case and you have installed a 8gig memory card(s) for example first try to format the card and if this failes then you need to go to the Canon site download the updated firmware for that camera and do an update. Everything will be good after you do this, when I did the update for mine there were seven updates one of which corrected the limitations on the memory card size. If the lens contacts are dirty and the camera is getting poor information from the lens you would I think receive a code 99 so not receiving any code of fault I'd say it's the card.
Although a good SD card is worth considering it's not the only thing that determines the speed. In fact the shooting light has more to do with it then the memory card. The Rebels although not Pro cameras are pretty darn fast with the differences immeasurable in most cases with Pro cameras. The Rebel will show the burst rate in the right corner of the viewfinder and if you noticed this rate changes with the light and shutter speeds. Sow the shutter speed down and that burst rate will drop as well. The size of the image file also dictates how fast you can burst in frames per second. You are shooting RAW and no doubt jpg's so the camera is doing double duty with some pretty impressive files size. If you want speed shoot jpg's and set your camera correctly for white balance, shoot for the end use. If you are looking for speed you aren't shooting portraits or landscapes where you have time to calculate your shot so the need for a BIG print isn't necessary so drop your image quality. The Rebel's processor is very impressive and it has a large buffer where it writes the file as you are shooting so in fact the camera is writing to the buffer at the same time it's writing to the memory card. That's why when you stop shooting it takes several seconds for the camera to catch up.
If you are looking for speed keep your shutter speed up, reduce the image file size, shoot jpg, class 6 works nice (I use this type) I have only one class 8.
On a personal note the Canon Digital Rebel has put so much power and performance in the hands of entry level photographers and they are using that power to come up with some darn nice photography and in the right hands it's putting the hurt to some long time pro shooters.
Is the camera shooting in RAW mode? If so, the files will not be in JPG format. Perhaps your Nikon download software converts to JPG for you?
I'm a Canon user myself, so forgive me if my terminology is not correct for the Nikon, but the theory is the same...
On my canon I can choose to shoot JPG mode, or RAW+JPG - this is the only way the card can be read directly on a PC.
Pre-PMA 2004: Canon today announced the impressively specified EOS-1D Mark II which features a new 8.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, it can shoot at just over eight frames per second and has a 40 frame JPEG image buffer (20 frames in RAW mode). This means that shooting at full resolution at full speed the camera is buffering 69 megapixels per second (or 100 MB/sec). Other changes include the addition of a USB port, an SD slot, the removal of the external white balance sensor as well as some subtle body styling changes.
Best qulity you can get with canon 350d is RAW format, but you cant shoot raw in automatic mode , when you switch camera to manual mode you will see raw option is enabled. if not JPEG (EXIF 2.21) - Fine will capture your images at 8MPX with 3456 x 2304 resolution.
