I think I have figured out the problem. The .pdf files are corrupt. Try opening the start page in the root directory of the download after unarchiving it. Try opening any of the links to the PDF files. Hopefully, other file types are OK but I have not verified (other than the initial HTML file).

Its a huge download and I'm downloading it now. Perhaps you need to download it again...? --- On Thu, 3/24/11, Jamal Mazrui <empower@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:From: Jamal Mazrui <empower@xxxxxxxxx> Subject: Re: Free Microsoft courses on accessible development To: programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date: Thursday, March 24, 2011, 5:26 PM Well, now I'm not sure whether 7zip worked right. I cannot open any of the .pdf or .docx files that I unarchived into a directory tree on my hard drive. Could there be something different about file formats on a CD that would not make them readable on a hard drive? Can anyone else open these files? Regarding Windows programs for .iso files, I tried with both an XP and Vista machine -- neither recognized the file type. ontoIs the Deep Burner program free? I would like to find an accessible, free program for this, though I guess a trial version of a commercial program would be OK as long as it is fully functional.

Makecertain whatever programyou're using, u don't make a data or audio cd. 3) Add the file to the project--in deep burner. Udo this just bytabbing to the browse button (it reads ...). 4) Then burn the image to disk. If u don't really wanna burn the image to disk,iso's open nicely w/7zip.HTH, & thanks for the info.

Can someoneprovide steps using a free program? Wouldsomeone consider posting a ziparchive of the same content? I know it wouldbe huge, but hopefullythere is a lot of good material in there.
