Hi Trevor,

I figured out how to copy from my file to the desktop, so please don't bother to answer that part of my request. That was a real first for me. Thank you so much for the advice. The file opened! Of course, I am going to dig out some of those other discs with the same file on them and test them too, just in case.

Ross has told me that removing the "Read Only" attribute from the file before copying it to a disc might also be a solution to the problem. I am wondering if this will allow me to open the disc without moving it to the desktop first.

Trevor, is there any way you can show your work to someone who does not have any genealogy program?
