The Specified File is not a virtual disk in VMWare Workstation or player

Long story on how we got here, but it ends with us having what used to be a VM on an external USB drive.  I am trying to launch in in workstation and i get the error in the title of this thread.  The vmdk seems to be multiple files, so when I try to use the vmware-vdiskmanager to repair/merge the files I get the error "failed failed to convert the disk: The file specified is not a virtual disk (0xf00003ebf).  Is there any way to merge this or any ideas from anyone on how to resolve this issue?

I have attached screenshots of the files that I have and the errors I am getting in cmd from merge and Workstation and player.

Thanks for the help.

Please compress/zip all the small files (less than 1 MB), and attach the .zip archive to a reply post.
