Reading a Seismogram


I am having trouble simply reading a seismogram using the following code:

from obspy.core import read
st = read(pathname)

However, after attempting to print ‘st’, the following error message occurs:

File “C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\obspy\core\”, line 253, in read
raise IOError(2, “No such file or directory”, pathname)
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘C:\Users\Edge 14 User\Desktop\x813-06-23-1959-35S.OV____078’

So it seems that there is an error with obspy attempting to locate the waveform file. I double-checked the file pathname multiple times, so I don’t think there is a problem with the pathname. Could there be a problem with where the obspy package is located in the Python27 directory? Currently, the pathname for the obspy folder is: C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages.

Has anyone else run into this similar issue?

Thank you for your help,
