    It is likely compressed ... expanding it will be done by using StuffIt.

    maybe that is because .ard is a very uncommon format, and you probably just dont have a program to open it with?

    What's the name/purpose of the file? I don't know much about ARD but Autorun sounds suspiciously like it's a PC disk image.

    If so, it's worth trying to load it with Disk Utility.
