Just 2 cents worth...
We all get to AOL via a Packet Network like SprintNet, there are quite a few chances for a packet to get garbled, even though both the ends show it was received OK. At 9600 baud there have been cases of the packet network padding a file in error and corrupting a download. One thing that helps is making a not of the # of bytes in a file, and checking that yours matches exactly. Hope that helps.
