I think you may not have been able to open your old file because of
not because FM 7 "can't" -- it certainly can. FM is backward

What error messages do you get when you attempt to open it?
Did you try opening the FM file with anything else? Like FM in text
mode (holding down the CTRL when you select it)? or a hex editor?
