The likely cause is that the package is not in Mathematica's directory search 
path. The easiest solution is to put the package in question to your Mathematica 
Packages folder. If you want the package somewhere else, you need to set $Path. 
For example, I have this code in my init.m package so that Mathematica executes 
them on loading.

$Path = Join[$Path, {
	"User 190:public_html:SpecialPlaneCurves_dir:MmaPackages_dir:ParaPlot_dir",
	"User 190:public_html:SpecialPlaneCurves_dir:MmaPackages_dir:TrochoidPlot_dir",
	"User 190:public_html:SpecialPlaneCurves_dir:MmaPackages_dir:TrochoidShow_dir",
	"User 190:Project Fantasy G:Graphic Packages",
	"User 190:Project Fantasy G:Graphic Packages:SaveToRotaterFormat_dir",
	"User 190:Project Fantasy G:Graphic Packages:TWJ_Packages"

So when I load a package that is stored in one of the above path, it'll load.
