MIF files are invalid in the Trados Studio 2009

I have just installed the Trados Studio 2009 and have also installed the last patch. I have a big problem:
When I create a new project and add MIF files (already used with SDL Trados 2007), at the end of the wizard, the software creates the following error log: "The file could not be opened because it is not in valid MIF file format"
But, I am sure it is a valid MIF format made from FrameMaker8, and already used with SDL Trados 2007.

My system: OS windows XP SP3 French Version
MIF created with FrameMaker 8 French version

Who has an idea ?
Best regards

Hi Céline !

I have no answer for the moment. I have been contacted by the SDL England and hopefully they read the forum, but my contact is out of the office until Monday 7th September.
So I am actually working with the old version.

I think there is a big bug with the Studio 2009 for several languages and MIF files.
Unfortunately there is not direct "bug" service to fix important problems like that.
