Samples Missing Error - But I believe they are there - Please help

Hello.  I have the following:

Mac OSX Version 10.5.6
Finale 2008

I believe I have installed everything correctly.

When I go to Kontact (through Finale Midi setup) and try to add a VDL sound bank (Snare Drum AUTO) I am getting a window that pops up and says

Then: Red Triangle with ! in it that says - 323 Files could not be found

It asks if you would like to find the folder of file.  I have directed it to the correct folder but still cannot make the connection to the sound files.

I am not sure what to do next.  Thanks for the help.

Can you go to the   directory where you installed your VDL Library and make sure that you have three files with an extension of ";.NKX";  If these are not there you will have to put the DVD in and then drag there from the DVD.

If this does not work, I can help you remotely.  Please send me a PM with your name and Serial Number and we can set up a time.

Actually, if you're using VDL 2.5, these should be [b].nkx[/b] files (not .nks)
Actually, the 3 files I have are:
3 nkc files and 1 nkx info file

So maybe I pulled over the wrong files?  Thanks for helping.

No problem Ron. Keep all those files where they are. You'll need to drag three more files off your DVD. They are:

Virtual Drumline 2.5_001.nkx
Virtual Drumline 2.5_002.nkx
Virtual Drumline 2.5_003.nkx

Place them in the same folder alongside all those nkc files and the other nkx file that you see. Once you've placed them there, that ";samples missing"; message should disappear.
Thanks for the help.  Will give that a try today.

Yeah that's correct.  :\  Typo.  Thanks for catching that, Jim.  X and S are  close  :)
THANKS!!! It worked!  Now back to writing!


PS - Love Tapspace and VDL!
