Studio 2009: Error "Could not find file" when opening or saving file

I have a project package from a client and I opened it without problems. When I open the file to be translated, though, I get the error message:
Could not find file 'xxx.doc'
(The name of my translatable file is 'xxx.doc.sdlxliff.) It gives me the option to search for the file on my computer, but I have not got that file. But I never get the original source files in packages, only the sdlxliff, and never had problems before...?
I can just click 'No' and the file still opens, I can translate in it but then get the error again when saving and it will not save. So basically I can't work with it.
I had this error a while ago on a different project and back then I asked the client for the original .doc file, put that in the folder and pointed Studio to it. I was then able to open and save my file, however the client later had problems creating the target files. So that was not the real solution I suppose.
Anyone have any ideas what this could be?
I have SP3 and run Windows XP Professional.
