    Hi guys, i've been havin a problem with my flash drive.
    All my corel draw docs on the drive don't appear as their respective software icons when in the icons view. Also the icons that do appear correctly change when i try to rename it.
    Then when i double click to open, it brings up the window asking me to select the program to open with. How do I sort this out.

    Are you sure you are not changing the extension of your Corel Draw files when you try to rename them. I mean there is an option in Windows explorer that shows the extension (filename.EXE). If this option is enabled by you, then you may have accidentally deleted the extension, too.
    Check your files and see if they have an extension ( for example *.MP3, *.DOC etc...). If so click on the Folder Options under the Tools menu in My Computer. Then chose the "view" tab and check the box "Hide extensions for known file types".
    This will hide all your extension and let you rename your files safely.

    Hope this solves your problem.
