When I try to open a .pst file from Outlook that I copied to a CD, I get an error message that Adobe Reader could not open "My Contacts Backup.pst" because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn"t correctly decoded). Should I be able to open this .pst file on a CD. I'm able to open the .pst file in Outook.

No, Outlook needs write access to the file. Copy it to your local hard drive and make sure it's not set to be Read-Only.
