mdx conversion help please

I'm trying to make/alter models using MilkShape 3D 1.7.6. I have an import/export tool in the program, but the export changes to a mdl file. I have YobGuls file converter, but whenever I change a mdl file into a mdx file, I get the following error message:

Error reading model file:
Error (line 1):Unexpected token "[] 1/2"

I imported a model from the game, didn't make any changes, exported it, and got this error message when I tried to convert the mdl file to mdx.

After doing some reading here on the boards, seemed like maybe the model was protected, and that could have been the reason for the error.

So I decided to start from scratch and make my own model. Exported the model into mdl, ran it through the file converter, got the same error message.

Anyone able to help me with this? Thanks.
