Hey folks, I've got a lil problem....About a week ago I tried to open one of the many ART files on my computer, and all I got was the little simbol everyone has seen when the pic wont display. I tried another ART file, and another none of them will open now, and I can't think of what may have happened to cause this.

I've tried opening the file with E-explorer, quick time, real player, even a program that is designed to read ART files. I started to suspect the files were deleted, but when I click on the properties of the ART file it states that there is still so many KBs of data in there. also if I run a seach for the file name using the "find" feature on my windows 98 op sys I'm still able to locate the folder the file was in, but still can't open it up.

Any suggestions? ART files represent over half of my 1 gig graphic library.

War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.

Hey thanks for the reply SteveAlmighty!

That link was very informative.

I was able to solve the problem in part. Thanks to a reply I got over at Cannabis Culture, I reloaded the AOL soft wear, used the browser to open the intact file, and then save the file as a bitmap image. Afterwords I used another imaging soft program to covert the bitmap image to and Jpeg. A lot of work for some 500+ files, but at least I didn't loose the data.

One thing though, why all the sudden did the files stop opening without using the AOL browser? I haven't used AOL in months, and I can't think of anything else that had changed, (i.e. loading new soft wear.) Perhaps it will remain a mystery. One thing I can say, I'll never go back to AOL again.

Again thanks for your help, and I hope anyone else having similar problems might find this thread helpful.

Does the program you use offer Batch Conversion?
