    Ok here is the deal: my friend saved illustrator 7 Mac files to disk for me, and my PC is unable to open them. Well actually nothing is popping up at all, no icons, nothing. I assumed that he saved them so i would be able to open them cause i have been able to in the past when others have done the same.

    I suppose there is no way of me being able to open them on pc.

    I was thinking of going to Kinko’s and opening them on a Mac then emailing them to myself.

    My friend is a little out of the loop, is there a way I can have him save the files so I can open them on a pc??

    Thanks in advance for advice, wise ass remarks, or photos with no text.

    digs lending the helping hand.

    you might need 'mac opener' to see the cd volume.
    I bet the files are there and it's just a disc read error.

    but if diggity's helping out... no need for me.

    asides from posting a random picture!!!!

    The disk was probably formatted on a macintosh, which makes it unreadable on a pc (in most cases, I'm sure).

    pc's can't read mac formatted disks, but macs can read pc formatted disks.
