I'll guess you are now getting 2D-encoded tiff files, which can't be
read by some tiff viewers.  You might find you need to convert them to
1D format or get a different viewer.  Check the notification email, or
log files, to see if the format is different than it used to be.

You might be able to use tiffcp or some other program to convert from 2D to
1D encoding.   E.g. something like "tiffcp -c g4", which is what I use. 
Check the FAQ and/or post with more specifics to get more specific
