Make sure that the size of the images is unchanged, i.e. no corruption
while transfering such as LF->CR/LF conversation has occured.  The
error messages could also mean that your floppy disk has media errors,
try a "format a: /u" in DOS (I assume you use it for rawriting) and
look if any errors are reported.
