That's normal: dump is a binary format and that is the start of some
data in svndiff format.

Load will handle svndiff format so that is not the cause of the failure.

Your dump file may be corrupt but you have not provided enough details
for us to be able to determine what caused it.  You could start by
giving us the commands you used to dump and load and the error message
you received.  If you are manipulating the dump file and assuming that
it is a text file then you may corrupt it.
