Receive a "error open disc can not due to the failure to lock the file

I had a disc with a boot failure.  I thought I had my saved VM but I got only an earlier version.

I put the disk in a USB enclosure and my new system cannot read the disc.

I copied the VM, I need my new drive.

When I try to open it, I get the error:

Cannot open disk '... vmdk' or

one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

Reason: Cannot lock the file.

I don't have the original system, so I can't try to open it on this system.

Is it possible that I can get this virtual machine to open?

Thank you


At least closed tab closed virtual machine or VMware Workstation then delete all folders/files .lck to the target of the virtual machine and then try to run it again.

  • PSCS4 can not save, because the file is locked or is left open


    I get this error a lot, maybe once out of every dozen will attempt to save. This happens on files that are in fact open... because I opened them in Photoshop! I open the file, make a change, hit CMD-S and get this message.

    The finder info panel says I have the permission to read and write the file.

    This happens with several types of files, not a single file.

    All my work is done locally. Don't mean to load or save on a network or some such.

    Just what might happen on conjecture? Of course, it is easy to get around. I "Save as" and give it a new name, then more later to delete the old file and rename a nine. Yet, it's annoying, especially after waiting 10 minutes for a backup finish on a large file, then having to start over.

    Thanks in advance!


    Finder crashes sometimes things, but quickly and briefly as a bridge.

    Spotlight or Quicksilver would be my guess.

    Photoshop cannot easily determine that locked the file.  You can determine which of the (Terminal) command line if you were enough UNIX warned.

    Photoshop locks the file and only blocks to save other applications to access the file briefly to the course.  Open the file do not lock or block other applications to read the file.

  • burn mp3 to CD audio files, can not put all the files in the 1 disc,

    I am trying to burn mp3 to CD audio, if I choose audio CD, some how when I drag the file in the burn list, it's auto show 1 file in a single disc, how can I put all files on 1 disc? If I choose the data disk, so I put all the files in the 1 disc

    In fact, when you copy MP3 files as such, it is written as such, in digital format. In other words, the size of the file is important here. Depending on the size of CD, 650 MB to 800 MB, you can add files only up to the storage capacity of the CD.

    In the case of the audio CD, the data is written in analog format (as a cassette tape or gramophone record). In other words, in the present case, the duration of the file audio issues. The capacity varies between approximately 74 minutes to 90 minutes, respectively.
    Because each file is 50 + minutes, as stated in your post, it is normal to restrict a file per CD, such as the capacity is 74 minutes to 90 minutes. If you use the MP3/WMA format instead, you can put all the files in a single CD.

  • Can not save because the file is already in use...

    For the last two days, I got this error several times.  It seems it only happens when I do a 'Photo fusion' initiated in bridge.

    I have Adobe CS4 Extended on Vista.

    In my 18 years of work with the PS I never got before.  I have all tried, close all applications, except PS, change file name, change the file extension, nothing works.

    I have also studied this topic in the forums.  They relate mainly to Apple computers, and I have not seen a satisfactory solution, an explanation or "workaround".

    Well, I hope that hope someone can help me with this.

    Thank you very much!

    You can use the hidden - administrator account to make another account as an ADMINISTRATOR with your same

  • Rate Audio not supported in the file. HELP PLZ

    I'm far from being comfortable with all programs of this type, so please bear with me. I am doing a slideshow for my Peewee team and I'm up to the wire to it. I bought PE4 in an attempt to open some options for our slideshows (my wife has already used Roxio but I wasn't happy with it). I'm trying to take a video that I've transferred from VHS to DVD using a Magnavox dubbing system. I am trying to take the video of the dvd and put it in PE4, so that I can put music on the video (the things in the crowd were not always things that grade 5 students should hear when they look at their video of the season). I succumbed to the import of files in PE4. I always get the same error message: "audio rate not supported in the file. I tried to convert the dvd to AVI using "Next Video Converter 3.0" and even "DVD Shrink 3.2" & "AutoGK".» I even tried to convert it to AVI using NVR and leaving out of the audio file. I still get the same message. Please someone help me with this. I am against the ropes here, and I don't want to disappoint my boys.

    I tried to find help by reading some of the other posts here, but to be honest that I was not able to make heads or tails of any of them. I don't really understand this kind of thing, and when people start talking about codecs etc, this is no logic for me. Any help in plain English would be appreciated.

    Thanks,-Rsvl Jedi

    The challenge is that these VHS to DVD dubbing sometimes systems use codecs (compression systems) for their video and audio that don't Digest well in programs such as Premiere Elements.

    The simplest solution is to convert DVD files (which are the VOBs) to DV - AVI using a program called MPEG Streamclip. Instructions where to find it and what are the settings to use in the FAQ on the right of this forum.

    A much simpler way to do this, is to let the DVD on the move of the VHS to digital completely. You can do this by using a device called a DV bridge. You plug your camcorder VHS or player inside and it connects (via FireWire) on your computer. The files it creates on your computer are DV - AVI, the ideal format for editing in Premiere Elements.

    I recommend the ADS Pyro AV Link. It sells for less than $150, and it will be more profitable for itself in a few weeks, if you do this kind of dubbing VHS regularly. The FAQ have more information about it and other DV devices. (Do not use cheaper scanners, like the Dazzle unit, incidentally. It only will lead to more headaches.)

  • error 7 - a common frustration due to the weakness of open file + .vi

    OK, I searched and read dozens of posts on this topic. But none of them answered my question:

    For many years, Labview has had this behavior: I can't find a file, so I throw the error text:

    7 error to open the file + .vipen file

    Possible reasons:

    LabVIEW: File not found. The file may have been moved or deleted, or the path to the file would be incorrectly formatted for the operating system. For example, using- as Windows path separators: on Mac OS, and a / UNIX.
    NOR-488: There is no Board of Directors.

    We have all seen it many times. The reason why this popped up every couiple of days on the forums is that the error message is not the name of the file is not found. "" The trouble of sorting would be so much easier if the file name has been shown, instead of the baffles or misleading ' NOR-488: nonexistent Council. "

    I edited my 'open the file + .vi' to always display the name of the missing file. The original code suggests that the name of the missing file is passed, but only in limited circumstances. I'm often stuck with it, and it's a big waste of time, step by step through code to find out what triggered it, or worse still try to help a customer on the phone who has accidentally deleted a file or a folder. If the error code displays the name of the missing file, the solution is normally obvious, even with a compiled exe.

    Am I missing something here? Is there a reason for not having posted the name of the missing file?

    I use lv7.1 (on a legacy project), but prevalence of "error 7" the forum posts here it seems that this problem still persists today.

    I think that this has been frowned upon in a new version of LabVIEW (not sure which version). In LV2012, it is the 'Open/replace/create' and it gives you the file name in the error dialog box (near the bottom).

    So I recently had my password wrong too many times and my iPhone 4S locked out telling me "iPhone is disabled; Connect to iTunes'. And so I connected to iTunes and decided to restore my phone. I finished the process of restoration of the configuration of my phone, but ultimately, it was not even let me in the phone! Once AGAIN he said "iPhone is disabled; " Connect " to iTunes '. However, this time, this message appeared just when I turned on my phone with a black background. I didn't scan the screen for the error message is displayed (and there was no time to be shown). When I tried to connect to iTunes again as he asked, now it says "iTunes can not connect to the iPhone because it is locked with a password".

    So now, he said "iPhone is disabled; ' Connect to iTunes' on my iPhone 4S and ''iTunes can't connect to the iPhone because it is locked with a password ' on my computer. WHAT should I do?
