Thanks David,

I agree it is likely corruption. It has not been compressed, but transfered 
via USB stick, I think it was unmounted safely but anyway, I'll take it on 
Monday to work to the Windows Squeak where it was created and confirm it does 
not load. If it does .. well we'll see

Thanks Milan
