This is my first time trying to use GDB data. I ordinarily work with Personal Databases (.mdb's) I just downloaded (and unzipped) a GDB from my County. There's data in it. It's 72mb in size.
From within a Map Doc, when I Add Data, I can see the GDB. But when I click on it, it says "Failed to connect to database" I'm running ArcEditor 9.3
Can I connect to a GDB from ArcEditor?
What do I need to do, to be able to load some data from my GDB?
Any help appreciated,

You could ask your local county if they could create a 9.3 version of the geodatabase using this process:
