Problem with mxd.SaveACopy

I'm using Arcpy to "downgrade" a lot of mxd-files from 10.3 to 10.1 - using an ArcMap 10.3 version.


This is actually working very fine! The mxd's can open - as they should - in ArcMap 10.1/10.2!


The problem is that ArcPy can't read the files anymore - only after the files are opened - and saved - in ArcMap 10.1/10.2.


So... it appears that some kind of file corruption occures during the "downgrading"!


Any ideas to a solution to this?


The code I'm using:


mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(mxdInFile)
