  • Hi BMWrider,


    I would like to confirm where did you try to import contacts and calendar from, optical drive, hard drive, removable hard drive or network drive?


    If you tried to import the data from optical drive, you may refer to the following link for the solution:



    Otherwise, you need to change the permission settings for the contacts and calendar to full control allowed for everything and clear the Read Only check box.


    For how to manage .pst files in Outlook 2003, please refer to the following link:
