I have had trouble reading restart files into ptraj before. In my
case, I was able to get around the problem by using ambpdb to convert
the restart files to pdb format. Then, ptraj read them successfully.
I don't know if this could be a small ptraj bug that has been
overlooked? (I was using ptraj from Amber 9.) In my case, I was
trying to use the restart files as reference coordinates for RMSD
calculations. Unfortunately, I don't have the actual ptraj scripts
used. The restart files were produced by sander and were functional
in that I could successfully restart a trajectory from them.
Anna, can you provide the ptraj script that is giving the error?
