MDI files can only be opened in Microsoft Office Document Imaging.If you want to open in any other graphical tool
then the scanned document needs to be saved in TIFF format which can be opened using irfan viewer, Imaging for Windows etc

Dont have office 2000 on this machine, In your Programs>Microsoft office>Micrososft oiifce Tools> Do you have
"Microsoft Office Document Imaging" . If yes then you can view it .
Else you will have to tell the person to send it again as a TIFF file.

Try this:

I found elsewhere that you can drag the mdi into OneNote, that worked for me.
