              So it sounds like the files are not the originals, but copies from a Carbonite restore?

               

              Can you zip the files and send to me? I'll send you an upload link in a minute.

               

              First, remember that conversions from Pagemaker can range from near perfect to totally useless. If you used Adobe Table or OLE in Pagemaker you'll have real problems, and all images need to be unembedded before conversion or all you will get in ID are the screen previews (and that also means you need to have the original images available).
