I have been sent some files which each contain 4 file extensions. They have the following extensions:
a gdbtable file
a VLC media file
I have ArcGIS 10.3, but have no idea how to open or view these files - please can you advise?
It looks like you were sent some of the contents of a file geodatabase.
Try creating a folder called "test.gdb" and placing the files in that folder. Then attempt to connect in DT 10.3.
As a test, I just created a new file geodatabase and it had 40 files in it.
I would recommend having the sender send all the contents of the *.gdb folder in a zip file and re-testing.
Many thanks for your prompt response.
I am unfamiliar with how to use geodatabases correctly (only this morning I started an online Esri course on them). Please could you advise as to which method I use to add the files into the geodatabase?

I was forwarded the email that you sent to the geonet email address.
I think that the files that you were given will not work at all. I believe that you are missing many missing files that are required.
As for copying data into the new file geodatabase. Make sure that you are copying/pasting data that you can preview in ArcCatalog.
If you need more assistance, you may want to contact your local Esri contact and get a support case opened and have an analyst help you with this issue in more detail.
