As someone else pointed out your problem may be the spaces.  Spaces
are used for parsing in many unix systems unless you put quote marks
around the name.  I don't know if that can be done in LaTeX.  I wasn't
able to replicate your example (I got a different error message), but
I avoid the problem generally by replacing spaces in file names with
underscores.  I have a script for that (written in - ugh! - tcsh)
called usfn.  I have released it at:


It goes through all files in a directory and changes spaces to
underscores.  It also changes some other characters that cause parsing
problems, see the documentation.
