I assume fireworks can read all the layers of most formats from Photoshop. 

It's the organisation of the various design elements into folders in
Photoshop that does not seem to come across to Fireworks. So I get all the
layers, but they lose all the folders...makes it a mess for a file with lots
of folders...

I never worked with Fireworks (too much of a Photoshop fan, I guess) but 
just a shot in the dark: can Fireworks read multi-layered Tiffs? 
Photoshop can save the layers separately in the same Tiff (transparency
