Unable to load MTL.text

I have downloaded some data from EarthExplorer (Landsat 7 and Landsat 8). I am able to load individual raster bands by drag and drop in the view window, but when I try to load the whole set through MTL.txt, it gives me an error. I get the same error from Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 files. I am taking an online specialization, and the instructor is able to add the whole set by merely drag and drop the MTL.txt files. Moreover, when I press the "+" sign on an MTL.txt file in the catalog window, nothing appears, and the "+" vanishes. I initially thought that the file might be corrupted so I downloaded various other raster sets from EarthExplorer, and all of them have same problem.

1) Catalog view of dataset. It sows me the collapse button on MTL.txt file.


2) The collapse button on MTL.txt file disappears after I click it, but I don't see any data under it.


3) I get error when I drag-drop MTL.txt file in the view window.


4) I get another warning when I press ok. And nothing appears on the screen still.



Can anyone tell me if I am doing it wrong or is it a problem with my installation? More importantly, how do I resolve this?

Hi Abdul,

I know you posted this a few months back, but I just wanted to let you know that I'm experiencing all the exact same issues and errors in attempting to drag an MTL file into the data window. (We must be taking the same online specialization, University of Toronto?).  Anyway, just wanted to let you know it's not just you. But I also don't know what's causing it so any input would be great!
