I am having trouble reading some of the binary dcd files generated using
NAMD on NCSA Platinum IA32 Linux cluster. On loading the trajectory in VMD
following error message is obtained.

read_dcdstep returned -6

Though most of the dcd files generated after these corrupted files in
between are fine. Is there way to retrive data from these corrupted
dcd files?
