What OS are you on?  Windows?  OS X?

I don't know how exactly Org decides how to open files on your system,
but if you're having trouble, I guess you should start by looking up the
value of the org-file-apps variable.  Try:

C-h v org-file-apps

You can use a link; see this section of the manual:

It depends what you mean by "open in org mode".  The only files it makes
sense to open as Emacs buffers with Org as the major mode are plain text
files in Org mode format.  But you can open other types of files in
Emacs in other modes.  And from within an Org mode buffer, you should be
able to launch programs other than Emacs (such as Word) that can read
other kinds of files, for example by following a link with C-c C-o.

Hope that helps!
