Original Message (ID '96194') By Bill Simpson:
What happens if you create a tiny file, perhaps even an empty file, with the funny name and put the file in the location that Mathematica will be looking for it. That may generate errors when the notebook discovers that it isn't a real .mov file, but it might get past the need to open the file and let you start working on the file. If that doesn't help and the contents of your notebook aren't confidential then perhaps posting your notebook would let someone better than I find a way to get it to open, temporarily patch the need for the file, post the modified version and let you go from there.
