Check the format of the documents. They may be in Rich Text Format (rtf) or
Unicode (txt). It depends on the program used to create the document.
You may be able to rightclick the document using Windows
Explorer and click "Open with..." and try several editor programs you may have
like NotePad, WordPad, OpenOffice, Professional Write or MS Word.

The obvious question. Can you see any of the files using Windows Explorer
or does the program say that the disk is not formatted? If so try this
