The Orchestra Pak can be a little quirky with its disk access. Do the
Orchestra files have an extension assigned to them? (ORC being a typical
one). If so try renaming them (while in Disk BASIC) dropping the extension
completely, do a directory from within the Orchestra pak see if anything
comes up.
