Did you open the file in text editor?
Did you try to parse it with any xml-validating tool?

That's mean you have an xml file somewhere, right?
Find it and open with notepad for example. XML is a text format there shouldn't be any problems with opening it. Maybe you'll find here any 'strange' characters.
To parse XML file you can try to use a browser (IE, Forefox etc), most of browser have XML parsers. If the file has errors browser will tell you that.

Look into the file once again, maybe garbage are only at the start of the file.
Look for string "<?xml" which is the beginning for most xml files.
Maybe you will be able to get the full xml file from here (remember xml file is text file).
