Unable to edit contents from my thumb drive

 Anonymous User -

Sir or Mam,

I currently run microsoft word 2003 on my PC. I can view items on my thumb drive and on my desktop but I am unable to edit them. I ran a converter to 2007 a while back and I was able to edit contents. For some reason I am unable to edit contents now. I would greatly appreciate some help with this matter. Thank you. Nick
