Xmodem file transfer failing...

I have a new Catalyst 2960G 8TC that I accidentally blew the image away on. I am trying to Xmodem it over, but it doesn't work...

The first 4 000 000 or so bytes go through just fine, then it seems that the switch starts interpreting the information as text and spews symbols out in the terminal constantly until the transfer is done. Once the transfer finishes, there is no image file in the flash directory at all. If someone could please help me understand what to do, I would be grateful.

Are you using Windows Hyperterm to perform the xmodem transfer? If so, change to a more robust program such as SecureCRT
