We have taken them back to interbase 7 for now, they are sending us the .gdb so we can test it here. I think they were having problems doing backups for some reason.

I will give this a go here, thanks a lot folks :)

Reinstall InterBase, do a "backup" with InterBase and a "restore"
with Firebird and all should be well (that is: if you didn't use any
IB7 specific features).
