Default Virtualbox: unable to attach a successfully created .vmdk file

I have two large SATA drives that came off a WInXP box. They've been
mounted and can be read from and written to via *nix. But when I bring
up the Virtual Disk Manager I get this "failed to register" message:

VD: error opening image file
'/home/sdavmor/.VirtualBox/VDI/Video+TorrentSource.vmdk'
(VERR_ACCESS_DENIED).

Result Code: 0x80004005
Component: HardDisk
Interface: IHardDisk {fd443ec1-000f-4f5b-9282-d72760a66916}
Callee: IVirtualBox {2d3b9ea7-25f5-4f07-a8e1-7dd7e0dcf667}

The .vmdk file was created with this statement (which should have
registered it per the documentation):

VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename
/home/sdavmor/.VirtualBox/VideoSource+Torrent.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sdc
-register

Here's the internals of the .vmdk file. I've tried changing the
/dev/sdd2 to be just /dev/sdd but I get the same response fromt he
vitual drive manager. I've tried changing (relaxing) the privileges but
that makes no difference:

# Disk DescriptorFile
version=1
CID=cb6a81f3
parentCID=ffffffff
createType="fullDevice"

# Extent description
RW 625142448 FLAT "/dev/sdd2"

# The disk Data Base
#DDB
