I have received a set of .myd and .myi files/tables.  I have no idea of their structure.  Is there any way to add them to a database or import them to a MySQL database?  If I drop them in a database directory they are not visible in MySQL CC.

Do you have .frm files as well? .MYI and .MYD are essentially useless without .FRM files.

No I don't have .frm files.  Is it possible that older versions of MySQL did not use .frm files?

.FRM files are as old as .MYI and .MYD

If you had the exact CREATE TABLE statements used on each table we could recreate the .FRM files.
