Hi Toby,
Except that the rest of the data is not showing up why do you say the data is screwed up?

I don't know what your data should look like but the two rows above look "okay".

If you are having a compatability problem with the two version of R, something you might want to try is downloading 2.4.1 or 2.5.0 and installing it on a USB stick. You can run R quite nicely from a USB and it might indicate if it is R or a corrupt file that is the problem.
