I still have the workbook and the movie file.  I now want to change the axis that the dipole rotates around.  When I open the workbook Mathematica says it can't find the dipole .mov movie file (it asks for file of a strange name containing g#28, which I don't think I used).  I have found no way to cancel this request, although there is a cancel button, it repeatable asks again.  If I point to the .mov file I have (I have even renamed it with the requested file name containing g#28) that file is greyed out and can't be selected.

In view of the odd file name, I can't help wondering if there is some 
disk corruption involved here. If you have an old backup, you might want 
to retrieve the notebook from there and see if it exhibits the same problem.

Try clearing the menu option "Evaluation/Dynamic evaluation Enabled" and 
see if you can open the notebook. Failing that, if you can post the 
notebook somewhere on a website, someone here (maybe me) will find a 
solution if at all possible.
