I had a student attempt to open a file that he had saved on USB. His session was saving the file to the USB and a corresponding .idlk file was present on the USB. The file continually crashed and issued the error indicated below (any idea what the source of this error could be?):

What exact version of InDesign is this? 184.108.40.2063?
The crash report doesn't look very enlightening. Though the reference to Assignments in frame #1 makes me wonder if you are using InCopy Assignments, and if so how.
What does "continually crashed" mean?
Thanks for getting back so quickly John.
InDesign 7.5.1 running on Lion 10.7.1. The file was corrupted in some way. We don't use InCopy. The student had saved his file to his USB and was working from the USB (the accompanying scratch file was also visible on the USB indicating that it was probably not saved correctly. It could be that the USB was loose and that a save to it was interupted but I am only speculating and wanted to rule out any possibility of a known bug.
The file could not be opened. Every time we attempted to open it on any machine the InDesign would terminate without opening the file. This would require a relaunch where it asked if you wished to attempt a recover of the file that caused the crash...again it would terminate the program.
