Unable to attach DB (MSSQL 2005)

I'm getting this error when i try to attach a DB:
TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio

Attach database failed for Server 'RA-VECTEST'. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?ProdName=Microsoft+SQL+Server&ProdVer=9.00. 3042.00&EvtSrc=Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo. ExceptionTemplates.FailedOperationExceptionText&Ev tID=Attach+database+Server&LinkId=20476


An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)


One or more files do not match the primary file of the database. If you are attempting to attach a database, retry the operation with the correct files. If this is an existing database, the file may be corrupted and should be restored from a backup. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 5173)

Got it sorted, i removed the .LDF file and attached the .MDF file and let the DB create a new .LDF file.
