Gerbers in ViewMate Problem

When I load my gerbers into ViewMate they are offset from the origin. I am a newbie and want to make sure my files are perfect before submitting them. My drill file comes out as 2.4, but I can fix that by editing the file. It loads into ViewMate at the origin. The offset for the gerbers is something close to (1, 1.4) If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this I would appreciate them.

I have the latest Eagle and ViewMate. I use the cam file from the website.

would it be possible for you to take a screenshot of the eagle layout (board) screen and post it online?

if not email it to me and i will upload it somewhere.

Might know whats wrong, but its kinda hard to explain at 7:30 in the morning :(
