My dentist gave me a x-ray of my teeth and it's about 5 meg. on a CD but can't see the data?

That didn't work so maybe I should just call them up and ask?

Did you open VLC first then go to its menu to pick the CD?

I got a disc once from my doctor, nothing I did would allow me to see the data. Call the local lab or the Dr.'s office and see how it is encoded. My local lab gave me the file type (which I can't remember) and when I googled it I found that there was no software to encode it; it was proprietary.

I'm guessing but I'm wondering if that 5.9 megs is the data for formatting and they forget or didn't know how to put the x-ray on it?

Call the lab and find out what CODEC was used.

Reasonable chance it is encoded under HIPAA standards, you may find something amongst then following links on Google.  HIPAA is for the medical field to keep your records out of prying eyes.
