Selection problem in 3D Studio MAX 2008!

Hi!, I'm modelling a car and I'm having problems selecting edges of the door's mesh: I can select some edges, but some other I can't. I thought it was because they were too small, and I scale it to 700%, but didn't work. I uploaded the .max and an image where I point which edges I can't select:
Here's the link:

It's not a problem of this particular mesh. I created a cylinder in a new file, converted it to editable poly, and there are some (many) edges I can't select! Will it fix if i re-install 3d Max?

Whoa... what the hell? I've never seen a mesh that fucked up before.

"I created a cylinder in a new file, converted it to editable poly, and there are some (many) edges I can't select!

I'm almost certain you didn't do this. That mesh seems to "bug out" 3ds max, big style. But if you CLOSE the program, then launch it again. You can create objects normally.

I think what you're doing is just going to File > New, and then creating new objects. This will not help you.
