R5 won't open mail file saved to CD

I archived a Notes R4.5 mail file to a CD and am now receiving a read-only message when trying to open the file from an R5 client. I can still open the file from CD when using a 4.65 client, however not 5.0.

Any suggestions?
It is trying to convert the views to R5 format, which cannot be done on a CD. You would need to copy the file to a drive and remove the read only attribute. You could then open it with a R5 client.
