Judy,

it will sound stupid but I had tons of problems with my thumb drive  
corrupting my rev stacks... after using it, rev would cease to  
recognize the stacks. It was not a rev problem it was a cheap thumb  
drive problem... have you tried to transfer the files using another  
medium?

Cheers
andre
