Apple Doc-Viewer files going bad?

 I've got all the Inside Mac books in Doc-Viewer format, and just the other day I started having problems with some of them.  When I open the file, Doc-Viewer thinks there's only one page (which is blank).  The files are all their original sizes, the index has all the topics, and doing a "Save as text" command gives me a text file with all the information.  
  This has happened with some files, and not with others in this group.  Do Doc-Viewer files go bad for some reason?  Something corrupt in the resource fork (the unusable ones _do_ have a smaller resource fork, although they have all the necessary resources).  I'd rather not re-download the affected ones, especially since both the Toolbox Essentials ones have died, and that's a lot of megs to download.
  Thanks for any help.

I've never seen this problem but here are some suggestions:

(1) Trash your DocViewer prefs and try again
(2) If you're running DocViewer off the CD try copying it to the HD and dropping the volumes onto the hard-drive based DocViewer.
(3) make sure you opening up the right files (not the *.idx) files.
