When I was in college, I had a computer that ran ME. During my four years, my major required me to type ALL of my lecture notes and print them--to put in a folder to turn in. I have kept the disc and I would like to take all of my notes and put them on this computer. I put in the disc and it keeps prompting me to get the Adaptec UDF reader. When I click on the link to get said program, it runs and says that it is installed correctly. I then go to click on the disc icon to get my documents and I get the same message again. I've gone to Cnet and have downloaded a driver from there and have pretty much had the same reaction. It says it's finished loading (I even rebooted my computer) and when I click on the disc, I get the same thing. Do any of you people have a way to resolve this? I'd really love to get these notes on here and review/refresh.

The computer I had in college was running ME. The computer I have now is running Windows 7. I hope I've given you guys enough information. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

What format are the notes created in? What is the file type suffix?

UDF is a format used for making CDs/DVDs that were intended to be used in the same manner as a hard drive, rather than being a typical CD/DVD file. Most of us call this the "pcaket-writing" format.

If you were using Word 2000 on that computer the defaults files type would be (doc, rtf) which Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 and Open Office can open and modify those files types

already did the Cnet download and it did something but when I go to the drive and try to open the cd, I get the same message as in the attachment I posted. I've tried to open it in Word 2010 and it's not recognizing anything on the cd

Do you have XP mode available in your Win 7 install? That would be available in Win 7 Professional or Ultimate. Try and navigate to the disc using XP mode, if it's available.

Just have the home version. If I can't figure this out, is there somewhere, like a Kinkos, that I can take the disc and have it read there? And perhaps have it put on my external? Or am I going to have to break down and dust off the old tower and load the disc and just go from there? Starting to worry that there's nothing on the disc, LOL I truly appreciate all the help I'm getting here!
