Hi, recently I copied masses of files (Dig px, MS Excel, MS Word) files onto discs using a IBM Thinkpad. I double checked the files were copied and tested, using the same computer. Many months later I am abt to upload files and using a new computer. Upon inserting the various CDs there is no sign of the files. I sent one back to the owner of the old computer and he can read the files. He mentions downloading some sort of dll software....can anyone point me to location and what to do? I am using Tosh Windows XP. I have tried using other computers all with no success.

I copied the files using the File Explorer - no additional software was used if I recall correctly.

This is the reply that was given to me:

"John you have to have the DLA software from IBM."
