John, I too ran into the problem of invisible files from eBay CD's. I found that on a different computer I could read the files. Once you read the files you'll probably notice they are many pages long. This may have something to do with low RAM on your computer or something like that.
Plus there's more than one way of opening a file. Try locating the file using "My Computer" and opening it up from there.
