Need help to reverse engineer checksum algorithm

Hi there, i have some files which ends with 2 bytes of checksum. I need to find out which checksum algorithm that has been used.

File 1: - Checksum is 3038 in hex
ASCII "1221929508"

File 2: - Checksum is 6F97
ASCII "4"

File 3: - Checksum is 2DD5
ASCII
"<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE ProxyList SYSTEM "proxylist.dtd">
<ProxyList>
<!-- Use no proxies by default -->
</ProxyList>
"

I know that the checksum in all files has been generatet with the same algorithm,
but which one ?

Please write if out have ideas to solve this.

best regards

(If people don't help you in one area, posting in more than one probably won't get you better results. You may want to check other forums, or perhaps do a little research.. as you've probably noticed, these forums aren't incredibly active, and your time would probably be spent elsewhere, (though I don't suggest abandoning that thread, as something may come of it, of course))
