Ok, this is the fundamental cause of your problems.
The converter searches for unit files from project's sibling
directories, meaning the directories that are below its parent dir.
Don't place copies of the same project there.
This is a useful feature because many projects include their libraries
there and they are found automatically.

Test again without those copied dirs and let me know what happens.

The converter is able to convert from old binary DFM to text LFM. It
should not cause problems.
