This sounds strange.  These files do not depend on the OS, so there
shouldn't be a problem -- and if you have different behaviors between
XP Pro and Home, then something is probably wrong in the OS somewhere.
Can you send me a file in its damaged form and undamaged form so I can
look inside?  (Use some format that will not change bits again, like a
zip file.)
