AMBER: restart file

Dear helper,
I run several high temperature simulations (500-600K) with constant
volume in Amber7, when they reach about 8-9 ns the simulations stop and
messages like the following appear:
* fmt: read unexpected character
      apparent state: unit 9 named t11.rst
      last format: (6F12.7)
     lately reading sequential formatted external IO
     Abort (core dumped)
then I tried to run it again using t10.rst, for instant, as the restart
file (and sometimes I changed the interval time of the results printed
in one file). When it comes to use the next restart file, say it
t11.rst, the same message appear.
Can someone help me to solve this problem?
Any help would be appreciated.

Best wishes,
