Windows 7 - trying to copy information from a cd

Likes # 0

  1. I copied my email addresses onto a cd from my outlook express on windows xp. I am having to use a windows 7 home edition for a while, whilst my windows xp laptop is repaired.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the info on the cd into a file on the computer so that I can print the information out.

  1. Can I save the email addresses of incoming emails on Windows 7?

It is all a bit too much for me. I find Windows 7 very difficult to use

Help please - in very simple language for a rank amateur

Did you export your email address book to the CD using that function in Tools? A guide to doing this is [here ]1

You will have probably copied a 'pst' file, to view this file in Windows 7 you can use this http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=9003 or this http://www.nucleustechnologies.com/pst-viewer.html

If you have created your .csv folder from your outlook contacts list, on your Yahoo mail page, click the options at the top right of the page, and select mail options, then click contact options from the menu list on the left, click import/export, click the browse button,find your your .csv doc, then click import now.

I assume the CD is in the optical drive of the Windows 7 PC? if so just open the CD in my computer and copy the file to wherever you want on to the Windows 7 PC.
