Viewing images in AutoCAD AutoDesk R2000 files

We are using the edrawings Viewer on both Windows PCs (XP) and Macs, but we inherited drawings which have some kind of images in them. eDrawing Viewer just leaves them out entirely. I'm using eDrawings 2010 SP1 (


Is there any way to see the images in the drawings? The files are ridiculously bloated (8 MB for a single-page drawing with two photos and about 20 components. The odd thing is that the tiny thumbnail preview shows that there's images there, but eDrawings can't do anything with them.


I'd even be content with digging into the binary files if there's a way to capture back the images that are placed. Otherwise we are left with very little information.
