Can't open files from a CD-ROM? by Just Bob
I double clicked on a readme.html on a CD-ROM and Vista says it can't access the internet? Also I wanted to copy the file name of a file on the CD-ROM and in other Windows OS I can right-click and choose rename so I can copy the file name (of course I can't really rename the file on a read-only CD-ROM but I just want to copy the file name). Any ideas?
