Can't get office 2010 to work with 2007 documents?

I have got loads of files that I have created in Office 2007, but I now have 2010 installed on my PC but I can't seem to get 2010 to print 2007 files as it is saying that I don't have permission. How do I get 2010 to have full functionality for 2007 files?

Check the Information Rights Management of Office 2010. I have 2010 and have never had problems printing 2007 files.

Now the brute force approach:
  1. Format a usb stick as Fat32
  2. Copy the files to the stick.
  3. Make a folder on your computer
  4. copy the files from the usb stick to the folder you created.
