Problem to start VM on VMware Server Version 2.0 with iSCSI

Hi,

I've just bought an Iomega StorCenter ix4-200d NAS Server of 2TB.
On my Windows 2008 server i'm running VMware Server Version 2.0, and i attached the NAS via iSCSI to my server (E:).
On the iSCSI drive (E:) of my server i have some VMWares that i just copied from another internal drive of my server.

When I try to add the VM via the VMware Infrastructure Web Access I get following error message:

The selected virtual machine is not recognized on this system. The cause of this problem may be that the virtual machine's .vmx file is corrupted, or that the virtual machine version is newer than is recognized by the host. You can remove the virtual machine from the inventory if you believe that it is not recoverable.Click the link below to remove the virtual machine from the inventory.
Remove Virtual Machine
To help diagnose the issue, you can check the virtual machine files at their last known location: "[Virtual Machines] DEV-VM-STP/Windows XP Professional.vmx"

If i copy this VM back to it's original location, all works fine, so my VM is not corrupted.

What could be the problem here?

Thanks!!

VMware Server Version 2.0

The VM has always been running on the same machine, I just added this NAS as extra storage for the machine and moved the VM's to this new disk.
