Gabe's guess turned out to be the case - the original file was truncated. I returned to the source and re-downloaded the y-chromosome BAM file - this time it was much larger. GenomeBrowse was able to index and display the sequence - thanks much for the troubleshooting assistance!

Thanks for the response, Gabe - you have mail! BTW, the sequencing was done by the Max Planck lab in Leipzig, Germany using a newly-developed single strand protocol.

I've loaded an ancient Neanderthal y-chromosome BAM file and the 1k Homo Sapiens reference sequence, but now I get the following error: could not create index, could not read data from block (error code 3). This seems kinda major - Any ideas
