Invalid DDS file / Invalid DDS header! / DDS image plug-In could not open image

Hi,

I wanted to use Gimp for trying livery modding in Dirt 3 as I saw it had a DDS plugin (which I downloaded and installed), - but looks like either I am doing something wrong, or something is amiss with the plug in.

I am running gimp 2.8 on windows 7, 64 bit and I am having this problem when trying to open a DDS . Error message I get is:

DDS image Message
Invalid DDS file.

DDS image Message
Invalid DDS header!

GIMP Message:
Opening 'C:\Users\Phil\Documents\Computer Stuff\Dirt 3 Modding\Cars for modding\for\livery_01\textures_high\for_tex_high_01.dds' failed:
DDS image plug-In could not open image

Also atttahced the error message

Can anybody help please?

Thanks,

Phil.

Can you open any other DDS files? Try some that are from the games/applications you're working on right now.

The files I am trying to open were originally pssg files which I have converted to DDS using Ryders PSSG editor.

I stupidly just saved them as DDS to start with instead of exporting them. However, I am still not able to open the DDS files in Gimpeven after correctly exporting as DDS.

Error message I get now after conversion is:

DDS image Message
Unexpected EOF.
