I transferred a microsoft windows Access database plus other files on to a memory stick with the intention of reading it on my IMAC 10,5,8 using bootcamp sometime in the future, but when I insert the memory stick into the Mac all items show up on the Mac highlighted in dark print but NOT the Access Database, which is shown but not highlighted. There doesn't seem to be a way to read it.
I tried using Home LibreOffice by dragging the database into it with no luck. Any suggestions please?

Are you booting into Windows on your Mac? If it is a file created in Windows, you'll need to open it in Windows.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Hi MYmacROX, Thanks for the quick reply. No, I am still looking for a Windows Installation Disc with SP2 installed, to run Bootcamp but I can insert the memory stick into my IMAC usb port and it will display from the disc image all the files it contains EXCEPT the Database Folder
which looks like this
M SHIP 2010.mdb preceded by a dark grey folder icon. The grey folder displays the word 'EXEC' on it so it appears that my Mac doesn't like something. I tried to drag the grey folder into this free website which is supposed to be able to read Microsoft Access Databases but it would not accept it ( Home LibreOffice ) I know the problem will disappear if and when I get Bootcamp but I guess I am too impatient ! There must be something about putting a database on to a memory stick.
