I've often found that even tho images appear to have vanished they are
still really there somewhere. That gives at least 2 opportunities;
1. Edit and save without trying to find the images and then see if the
images apparently re-appear in the right places when the edited file is
opened back in MS Office 2007/2010
2. Hunt around the edges of the pages and move any images you do find
anywhere to see if the other images have been hidden underneath as they
tend to get piled-up on-top of each other.

I generally have success accurately opening docx format files.
Occasionally I get one that I have to open MSO and convert to doc (2003)
or ODF 1.0/1.1. Usually it is some graphic layout that causes the
problem. This is known issue with LO and AOO.
docx file conversions are occasionally difficult because MS is trying to
push their proprietary MS Office and makes open the file accurately
If you are using Linux, you might try Calligra Words (probably available
in your repository) to see if it is better at opening the file and
saving to odt.
