Thanks for the quick answer,the trick works, still I hope the problem will be fixed by the developers in NAMD2.11 itself.
Is there a way to report possible bugs?
Thank you!

Hello Marco
Try loading your dcd file in VMD and save it again as dcd file there with "Save coordinates" option, it worked for a similar issue I faced.

Dear all,
moving from NAMD2.10 to NAMD2.11 I am no more able to read the number of frames from the header of the dcd file, what I get now is a 0 value.This happens reading the dcd header with an in house fortran code but also with the dcd-header-manipulation code downloaded from: tmgriffiths/dcd-header- manipulation.git

All the remaining info in the header are ok, just the number of frames is corrupted.
Thanks in advance,Marco
