The very beginning and the very end of files often have clues to the purpose of the file.  Can you show those parts?

I don't see anything recognizable in that file.  I don't know what it's supposed to be.  Is that the original file name?

yes - it is an xml file so you think it is encrypted

Something has happened because there aren't any readable strings in there, not even an XML header.  It may simply be corrupted.  It looks like a chunk out of the middle of an image file.

is it possible that it is encrypted, I have about 40 cds each cd contains a number of patch files and this xml document that lists the applicable framework I'm assuming you would open the framework xml and it would like what patches on the disk apply to that specific framework. Every xml file looks similar to the one above and every file on every disk is like this. the discs work using the patching framework. I'm trying to create my own that is why i want to try and read the file.
