what converts .cdr to .ai

Hiya guys,

I'm in a wee bit of a pickle and I hope someone here can help me. Does anyone know of a tool that'll convert .cdr (vector graphic) file into .ai? I can't tell you which version of CorelDraw it's created in, only I can't open it and it's dated 2007, however some other versions of CorelDraw import fine!! So I'm at a lost.

FYI: I'm using Illustrator CS5 and it's just giving me a pop-up box telling it can't open the file! Annoying.

The only OS X app I know that handles CDR:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/uniconvertor/

Wish that Graphic Converter did. I use Parallels for Corel, sadly. The last Mac version of Corel Draw was PPC, v.11.

This looks interesting ... I sometimes have this issue, but haven't found a solution.

I can't figure out how to use it ... any advice?

Cheers

UniConverter is a command line tool. There is no graphical version or frontend for the app, but one could probably setup an AppleScript or Automator process for it.

Have a look at this link On-line File Converter or anything from this Google search page.

I seem to recall this issue coming up a while ago, and an on-line service was the answer.
