Hello dickchan,

Outlook 2003 should be able to read Outlook 2000 created PST file.  PST file may be corrupt.  Repair Damaged Outlook PST File
ScanPST
http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/outlook/repair.html
OR
Outlook Recovery Toolbox
http://www.oemailrecovery.com/outlook-recovery.html

In Windows Vista, PST file is located in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

It is a hidden file, so you have to unhide hidden files. Open Windows Explorer folder and select Layout > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

Hope this helps!
