How are you making your pdb file? Be sure to use the "brookhaven"
formatting for atom names if you use ambpdb. This is the default in
Amber 7, but required a switch (I think is is "-brook") in earlier
versions. In any event, check the formatting of the CB cards in your
file against a genuine PDB file to see if you can spot formatting differences.
