Invalid Freehand File Error - Macromedia Freehand

We are having problems with FreehandMX locking up. The real problem is when we go to open the file that was open when Freehand locks up, it gives us the Invalid Freehand file and we can't open it. I know the version of Illustrator 10.0 we have can't open the FreehandMX files. Does anyone know if there is something else out there that might be able to open or import this Invalid Freehand file to see if we can salvage it. Any help would be greatly appreciated....

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that we are using Macs - OSX 10.2 - 10.3. This is
    the third time I've tried to post this. Their website doesn't even work right
    either. Macromedia engineers couldn't program a VCR.

    Well I see at least eight entries all with similar info. 10.2-10.3 you say? ;)

    It sounds like the file got corrupted and is unopenable. If you were working
    with a Freehand EPS then you might be able to salvage that part of it. If not
    then you just have to pick up from where you left off with one of your backups
    (a habit I got into after being burned with this problem.)

    Try typing .fh10 or .fh11 at the end of your Freehand file name, sometime this helps to read it. Also reload your program there may just be bugs in it.
