transparency in PSP9

Recently I acquired a few images with transparent backgrounds that I was going to use for an icon batch. Usually when I work with transparent backgrounds the image will open up without a background at all (like it should), but these images open up with black backgrounds instead, like extractable PNGs. I've used PSP9 for a few years now but still can't figure out how to fix this problem, and I've finally decided it is important enough this time to ask for assistance.
I wouldn't mind if they opened with white backgrounds but I can't work with black, and my magic wand tool isn't helping extract it. Also, the images in question have quite a bit of black in them already so setting a palette transparency isn't working either. Any help is greatly appreciated.
