Hi Larry,

that can mean allmost everything. At first you should verify that
a other program (like ImageMagic or PaintShop) can read the TIFF.
Second you may look what kind of TIFF (compressed - how, uncompressed,
RGB, Palette, Grayscale) it is. 

You should also look if your MIRA program can be forced to create
a certain type like "uncompressed RGB" instead of the actual one.

Hope that helps
