Something else to try is opening the file, and once it starts to display
the drawing, hit <ctrl-c> (or <escape> depending on version). This
should interrupt the display of the drawing. Next DXFOUT the drawing.
Now start a new drawing, and make sure that "No prototype" is checked.
Then DXFIN the same file that you just created. With any luck the
drawing will come in without a problem. I have had VERY good luck with
this method, when I have have the bad luck of a corrupt drawing!
Hope this helps...
