D3DXComputeBoundingBox problem

has anyone had problems with this method - i am using directX 8 and trying to compute the bounding box from a file mesh.  I dont get any errors in the methods but the returned vector dimensions do not add up.

     LPDIRECT3DVERTEXBUFFER8 vertBuf = NULL;
     LPD3DXMESH m_pLocalMesh = NULL;
     BYTE* pVertices;

     device = dev;

     if (FAILED(frame.m_pMesh->Create( device, const_cast<LPSTR>(xFileName) )))
          return false;
     m_pLocalMesh = frame.m_pMesh->GetSysMemMesh();
     DWORD fvf = m_pLocalMesh->GetFVF();
     DWORD numVert = m_pLocalMesh->GetNumVertices();
     
     HRESULT hr = m_pLocalMesh->GetVertexBuffer(&vertBuf);
     if (FAILED(hr)) MessageBox(NULL,"BAD","BAD",MB_OK);
     
     hr = vertBuf->Lock(0,0,&pVertices,D3DLOCK_NOSYSLOCK );
     if (FAILED(hr)) MessageBox(NULL,"BOX BAD", " BOX BAD",MB_OK);
     // compute the bounding box //
     hr = D3DXComputeBoundingBox(pVertices,numVert,fvf,&minVect,&maxVect);

this is my test code sample.
PS - minVect and maxVect are public vars D3DXVECTOR3

Here is my code, it work perfect:

BYTE *pVertex;
D3DXVECTOR3 min;
D3DXVECTOR3 max;

m_pMesh->LockVertexBuffer(D3DLOCK_READONLY, (BYTE**)&pVertex);

D3DXComputeBoundingBox((VOID*)pVertex, m_pMesh->GetNumVertices(), m_pMesh->GetFVF(), &min, &max);

m_pMesh->UnlockVertexBuffer();

If your program still doesn't work, that meens you have wrong data in a vertex buffer.
