The G Code file you are using has an illegal character in it, as manmardam says you will need to attach the file to the forum so that we can let you know what it is.
If what you have pasted above is what you are trying to load as code then it will not work as it is not recognised G Code.

That would be a DXF file - and a very short one too... in fact that's just the first few lines of a DXF file.

Cheers
