CBM HIR and HBM, where are they?

These formats are listed in the formats list, but I can't find them in the Open dialog dropdown, in both MP and Classic.

I have some *.HIR files from an archive dating back to the mid-80s and I think these might be in this format. All are 8190 bytes. Nothing in the header, they appear to be all data.

Is Show all graphic formats (ToolsSettings…GeneralGeneral) activated?

Thank you, that made it visible, and they did not load... so perhaps these weren't CBM files.

You can verify the format by uploading them to the following site:
