    Illustrator don´t open ".cdr" files. Before, you'll have to export from Corel ai format. Then you can open the ai. from any Illustrator (PC or MAC).

    The best way today to use files across is the PDF!
    PDF can be used in illustrator, corel, photoshop, indesign...

    You wrote you received from a client that cdr file. So this client must have corel, somewhere. He must save this cdr file in an earlier version, or ask him to export this file in ai or pdf document.
