RESTORE FILELIST ONLY
WITH DISK ='Complete path of ur backUp file '

WITH MOVE 'ming' TO 'd:\db\ming_bk.mdf'
MOVE 'ming_log' TO 'd:\dbming_bk_log.ldf'

I am sorry , try with  'FILELISTONLY' (no space b/e those 2 words )


Here is an Example from Books online

This example creates a new database called MyNwind2_Test. MyNwind2_Test is a copy of the existing MyNwind2 database that comprises two files: MyNwind2_data and MyNwind2_log. Because the MyNwind2 database already exists, the files in the backup need to be moved during the restore operation. The RESTORE FILELISTONLY statement is used to determine the number and names of the files in the database being restored.

USE master
GO
-- First determine the number and names of the files in the backup.
-- MyNwind_2 is the name of the backup device.
RESTORE FILELISTONLY
   FROM MyNwind_2
-- Restore the files for MyNwind2_Test.
RESTORE DATABASE MyNwind2_Test
   FROM MyNwind_2
   WITH RECOVERY,
   MOVE 'MyNwind2_data' TO 'D:\MyData\MyNwind2_Test_data.mdf',
   MOVE 'MyNwind2_log' TO 'D:\MyData\MyNwind2_Test_log.ldf'
GO

Step1.  find the physical filenames

RESTORE FILELISTONLY
FROM  DISK = 'd:\db\BACKUP\ming.Bak'


Say it gave me the files as  Ming_Data  and Ming_log.

Step2 : restore the database as a new name

RESTORE DATABASE Ming_Test
   FROM MyNwind_2
   WITH RECOVERY,
   MOVE 'Ming_data' TO 'D:\MyData\Ming_Test_data.mdf',
   MOVE 'Ming_log'  TO 'D:\MyData\Ming_Test_log.ldf'
GO

FYI
RESTORE DATABASE ming_test FROM
   DISK = 'd:\db\BACKUP\ming.Bak' -- this is the Backup location, in your case backup is on Disk so yu need to put the path of the filename also
   WITH RECOVERY,
   MOVE 'Ming' TO 'D:\db\Ming_Test_data.mdf',  ------------ 'Ming' is the name of your datafile (the first column value u get when u run the RESTORE FILELISTONLY
   MOVE 'Ming_log'  TO 'D:\db\Ming_Test_log.ldf' ------------
