It is actually bad FL format (file format).
You have upgraded your firmware in the radio, but the RCF in their was written for an older code.
Kinda like running windows 3.1 programs on XP.
All you need to do is use the correct version of PCC for the firware that is in your radio, then read the RCF and Write it back in. Should clear it up.

I have an Ascend with 4.8.10 firmware, what PCC is applicable. I am not sure of features as I can't read as of yet.
