Opening drawings in Civil 3d 2009

I just recently had to install 2009 from map 2008.  When I open drawings last worked on and saved in 2008 and open them in civil 3d 2009, I get drawings that freeze up upon opening.  Some will eventually open, showing errors.  Others will never open and just freeze up.  Any suggestions?

2009 is like R13, a big flop!  Make sure you install all the service packs.

You might also try opening the older files with Recover. Although I don't recall any specific issues I had when going from 2008->2009.
