Are you able to open this file on the older computer?

This file is totally corrupt and does not seem to have any information in it.

My file type scanner does not find any reference to ANY file type.

The problem here is that the files are corrupt.

You will have to re-copy them over.


You may click the green I'm Satisfied / ACCEPT button on the bottom right of your screen now and leave any feedback for me that you feel is appropriate.

Thank you,
- Jason
