Opening Map Packages

Map Packages:  I received 8 map packages from a client, I need to make sure all the data is there because they are leaving the project I'm working on. 

My questions are:

-Is there a special way to open a map package? I've just been double clicking on the mpk in ArcCatalog, but I noticed there are actual map projects within the map package, should I be opening them instead?

-The data seems to be saving in my C drive?  Don't I want the data and the maps to be in the same location?

-When I open some of the attribute tables, They are empty.  When I click on a field, a "table window" pops up saying There was a problem sorting, An expected Field was not found or could not be retrieved properly".   

Is there anything else I should do to make sure all the data was transferred in the mpk?


Thank you so much in advance!
