Default Legacy files -- PC Quark

I'm working with legacy files (novels, approx 200 pp each) from about 10 years ago. They were originally created in Quark 4 for PC. I need to get them up to at least Quark 6.0 in order for the publisher to be able to use them.

I can get them to open in Quark 5, but when I try to step them up to Quark 6 they crash, giving me "EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION(Invalid Read)" etc. etc.

I managed to get two of the five files up to version 6 by opening the Quark 5 files in 6, doing an intermediate save in 6 but as a version 5 file, and then saving that intermediate file as version 6. The other three are proving intractable.

Does anyone have advice? Fortunately the two that worked were the only two I need immediately, but soon enough I'll need the other 3...
