Unfortunately you have not provided enough information for us to help
you.   You didn't indicate what program you used, how you used it,
what result you expected, or what result you got.   You mention a
programme without identifying it, so I am somewhat at a loss to
understand what problem you are describing.   Please try to be more
specific when asking for help.

At this stage my best guess is that you have configured your system
for the UTF-8 character set, but your filename is actually in
ISO-8859-1 or a related character set.  But in the absence of detail,
this is just supposition.
