DICOMDIR reported as empty

I am a support group leader in Singapore for neuroendocrine disease, a rare cancer. One of our patients has a set of DICOM files on CD, which their clinic cannot open.

I have uploaded the files to Dropbox ( and tried to open using a DICOM viewer. The header is able to be loaded but reports 'DICOMDIR (empty)' and does not process the studies or series. I can see that the image files are intact and can browse them individually or load each series one at a time.

I have exported the header to a text file and it's also in that Dropbox folder. Is there a way to reconstruct the header so that the whole set of studies can be accessed with Micro DICOM viewer?
