reading with ReadList



I am having difficulties reading a list of data into Mathematica. I have
two copies of the data file in different directories. the first copy is
in a directory called "crap" (which I use for testing code etc) and the
second copy is several directories down. 

when I use the line:
csat=Table[ReadList["c:\crap\csat9070.dat",Number,RecordLists->True]]

the data is read-in fine.

when I use the line:

csat2=Table[ReadList["c:\craigd\almgna\morbplen\5510\csat9070.dat",Number,Re
cordLists->True]]

I get "$Failed"

I have checked the path and also that the files are identical.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong ?

Thanks in advance
