I am trying to access the sra data via sratoolkit.but following error occurs after I enter the test command.

F:\sratoolkit\bin>    fastq-dump.exe -X 5 -Z SRR390728
2015-10-09T08:39:43 fastq-dump.2.5.2 err: item not found while constructing within virtual database module - the path 'SRR390728' cannot be opened as database or table

I also configured using these instructions.

Still unable to access.

If you already have the SRR390728.sra file in your folder, then only it works. Use prefetch to download the data from the archive. Try to use a Linux system which will be more comfortable than windows.

Hi! even I got the same error.. I also tried this..

vdb-config --restore-defaults                                                                                
Unknown argument restore-defaults
2016-03-16T10:02:38 vdb-config.2.1.7 err: param unknown while parsing argument list within application support module - While calling ArgsMakeAndHandle

How to solve this ??

Thanks in advance..

You may want to search with the SRA # at EBI ENA: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena. You can find links for fastq sequence files once you open the record page. No need to struggle with sratoolkit.

Try

vdb-config --restore-defaults

I am collecting errors on tools on the handbook webpage:
