Restore after sort order changing problem

I want to change sort order to custom, so I was doing:
1. define a "mysort.srt" file (ID: 71, old was 52),
2. backkup all users databases,
3. rebuild master databases with setup utility.

Rebuild is done succesfully.

Then, I want to restore all users databases,
but in some databases I get an error message like this:
"In databases are index on char columns in another
sort order", and i havo no choices - only OK -
restore process was broken.

What can I do to restore my databases in new sort order ?

You can not load data backed up under one sort order into database having different sort order. You should first unload data into text files (using BCP) then change sort order/rebuild and load data back from text files.
