AutoCAD 2009 version not readible ?

Hi guys,

 

I am new here but i have an urgent question which needs to be solved.

I use Meridian , a piece of software which attaches an Autocad 2009 dwg to a Tiff file which will be edited in Raster Design.

This added DWG can not be opened in acad 2009.

So when i open the file in notepad it says at start says II* , which needed to be AC1021 ?

Can anybody tell me if II* is another acad version , or is the file corrupted ?

Before we had this problem also with Acad 2002 , and we converted it with dwg trueview and it al worked fine, so if trueview could read it , it should be an autocad compatible file.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks in advance

 

Regards,

Alvin

Appears to be a dead/corrupt file: post it here for confirmation.

Hi pendean , thank you for your reply!

I have attached one of the dwg files which i cant open.

 

If you read this article you can find all autocad version codes which appear in the beginning of the dwg file when opened in notepad. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.dwg

 

I would love to hear you findings

You have a dead file according to AutoCAD 2011-2012: there is nothing to recover with those programs. Sorry.

My other two dwg-capable apps gave it a hard try but ultimately decided it was not valid either.
