It's definitely a character set issue, but I don't know specifically what the official course of action should be. I just changed my database character set to UTF8 and that cleared up the problem. If you look in the database, I'm willing to bet your images are actually safely stored in the relevant tables but something goes wrong in the process that takes the image data and converts it into a binary file.

Honestly, I think the best solution is to not use the database to store files unless you have a really good reason for doing so.
