can you post ur .fla for download and we'll test to open it. Maybe it's not a flash file or still a FlashMX 2004 or Pro.

I have Flash MX 2004 7.2 (Eclipse), and it won't open for me. It could be that the file's corrupted. I don't know that it makes a difference, but are you trying to go from a mac to a pc, or vice versa?

I opened this file in Notepad. It doesn't seem as a .fla file. it is probably like some other type which is wrongly renamed to .fla

no, it's definitely a flash file. what you're seeing is just the raw .fla format when you open in Notepad. Flash figures out what it all means.

are you on a network? you could share the folder from the other computer, map the drive and see if you can open it from your computer, and then save it if it works.

I'm having the same difficulty and have had this problem in the past.  I've got some files that were given to me on a cd (pc to pc) that I cannot open.  In the past I've had them zipped and emailed (which worked) and loaded to a server for download (which didn't).

I'll be very interested in seeing any resolution to the problem.

Ok, just received new versions of the fla files that do open.  The originals were saved as Flash MX 2004, but I'm working with Flash MX.  So that explains my problem.

You get unexpected file format when you have two different versions, I also got it and had problems from passing flash from home to school.  How I solved it? use Same version
