Dear Ruzhen,

> well, no luck. any other ideas?

Not really. If your files are OK then one of these options should work.
You can check if they are OK by any number of simple operations with
ptraj (calculate rms deviations or something). You can also get ptraj to
write you out another (shorter, even 1 frame) trajectory or a pdb file.
If VMD won't even read a pdb file then there could be something wrong
with your installation. Try to eliminate as many options as possible.
That's about all I can think of.

Good luck.
