I've been trying to get a few of the recipes that I burned to CD-ROM converted over on this computer. At the time, I couldn't get Word to open the documents on the disc, as it kept saying that the files were corrupt. I was able to open them with Notepad, cut/paste the text and formatting codes over to Word, then format it back to the original. That was a bit of work, as there were extra spaces between all characters, as well as the formatting codes.
On a whim, I ripped all the files and folders from the CD-ROM onto the HDD of my desktop pc. I started the conversion process, when I accidentally managed to double-click on one of the files that I ripped, and IT OPENED! I now have access to all the recipes that I backed up last March. I just have to try and track down the 300 - 400 recipes that I got between March and December of last year.
I have no idea why Word won't open the documents from the disc, but will open the same document once it's on the HDD.
