My top suspicion is that you have a backup file there that you have
inadvertently named with the ."fdb" extension. I suggest you try
again, this time just making certain about those file names when you
back up and restore.
BTW, this error has nothing to do with the file name: it is raised
when the engine finds the named file but can't find a database header
page in it.
Also, Firebird doesn't care about extensions at all. ".fdb" for
databases and ".fbk" for backup files are just a convention.
