I just happened to see this particular topic 'cause I've got nothing better to do than mindlessly surf G2G.
Anyway I may be able to help. I use OpenOffice myself.
Step 1: Create a new document in OpenOffice.
Step 2: Choose "File> Save As..."
Step 3: In the dialog box that pops up make sure that "Automatic File Name Extension" is checked. (This check-box is located right under the drop down box: "Save as type")
Did this work?
Q. What extension ("*.odt" "*.doc" "*.htm" etc.) is it saving your files as making them unreadable?
(if you cant see you file extensions in windows Explorer (ie; you're just getting MYFILENAME instead of MYFILENAME.odt) Go to:
Tools> Folder Options. Click the "View" tab. Scroll down the options and un-check: "Hide Extensions for Known File Types"
It might be a problem with OpenOffice not making the right extension for the file type (thus making it un-readable unless you manually change the extension).
