Edit VM settings click on hard disk and check mode.  If disk is independent it will not be allowed to be snapshotted.

so you currently have snapshots visible in Snapshot Manager, and when you try to create a new snapshot, you get this error message.

"File <unspecified filename> was not found"

Can you perform any other tasks on the VM, e.g. Edit VM settings, Connect and Disconnect CDROM, Floppy etc?
