  In your case, I think that that fundamental question is to find out why
you have a differing atom count between your various files.
Once you answer that question and use files with consistent structural content,
VMD will be more cooperative. Without knowing what specific steps you
performed however, nobody would be able to guess how you ended up with files
that contain non-uniform numbers of atoms.
