Error Message 5105

We are using sp_attach_db to import a .mdf and  .ldf file to MS SQL Server 7.0. We received the message "Device activation error. The physical file name '*.mdf' may be incorrect". Has anyone encountered this problem before or know of its solution

Remember that MS-SQL doesn’t support the access of database devices over the network.
