Lost raster links from older files

Lost raster links from older files

Greetings all,

Were using AutoCAD 2005 but many of the files in our library are older R13 files. If I'm correct, back then hybrid files generated a third and/or fourth file with a RAS and RES file extention that contain the link, scale and coordinates for the insetion of the raster file.  I've been told that as long as one or the other of those two files is in the same directoy as the vector and raster file then the drawing opens up properly and once saved the RAS/RES files can be deleted.

I've never had that happen and it's a total pain in the neck to scale up the raster to where you think it's supposed to be then move and scale the vectors into place.

There's gotta be a better way to get the original raster information back into the drawing, does anyone know what it is?
