It would be helpful if you could tell us how you saved these contacts (that is, what application you used to save them on the computer); if you can find the file, the file TYPE (the extension after the .dot in the file name), and the location of the file (s) on the hard drive.
It easily may be that you are trying to view the contact information with the wrong application, and the additional information would confirm this and help us fix the problem.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
