    FreeHand can open files saved in the uncompressed CorelDRAW 7 or 8 format.
    Is that what you're trying to open? Were the files compressed when saved?

    Investigate the compression in the Corel file. I had huge problems till I
    "Saved as" (or exported - can't remember) and ensured that there was no
    compression of any sort in text, bitmaps or vector in CD. Then FH9 opened
    the files perfectly.
