I'm sure this would work but I have a complication.
One of my FW external drives was used for backup, so it has an operating system.
After cleaning preferences and cache, I was told that the iDVD file was being blocked by another user (the one on the external).
I've removed the preferences on the external, but there is not a cache.db file in iDVD's cache folder on the external.
Bottom line: still can't launch the file.
Thanks very much for you help.

Project file is located on a second external FW drive (no OS).
FYI - I've removed iDVD application from the FW external that has the OS. That didn't allow the file to launch, either.
This is like a brain teaser.

Great idea. However, I even disconnected the FW drive with the other OS...and it still won't unlock!!!!!
I've worked aorund needing the file opened but it's the principle of the thing.
Thanks for your efforts.

One more try. Download BatChmod and drag the project file into to it. Click on the Unlock checkbox and Apply. Keep the other settings that appear. This is what I see for a project file on my EHD:
