I can open and view the contents of a 3 1/2 floppy disk using My Computer or Explorer. But when I go to open the file. It will not read the files. I used scandisk and found bad sectors but did not indicate any errors over data files. Any suggestions.

is it jsut this floppy disk, or is it doing it to alot of floppy disks? If the heads in the floppy driver are dirty, that can cause a problem. however, if you floppy has bad sectors, then it is likely a bad floppy disk. To check, either try other floppies in that floppy drive, or try that floppy in another floppy drive, or both.
