It's possible that the file has become corrupted... does it give you any sort of error or whatever when you try to open it?

Abra, i only have one idea... try to start a new file, and then import the other file.. see if that works, it might!

Are you on an NTFS volume? Isn't there some fancy journaling-filesystem-way to get back to an uncorrupted version of the file?

do onething... you mean it just dissapeared from your screen right.... i had encountered this... what you have to do is... go to your maya folder in your documents folder and then go into 4.0/4.5 and delete prefs.... and try opening it again.. beware all your stuff will reset.. i mean maya UI....

worked for me..... hope it works for you too....
