Prj. File Error for DEM

I have acquired a 20ft dem of Moore County NC and was provided with a prj. file and get the following error when I load.

Error parsing C:/*******/moore prj. at line 1, column1
some data maybe missing
edit coast model parameter values

I have tried to attach the prj. file but it has been rejected.
Can someone assist me.

I have meta data showing corner coordinates but have no idea how to rectify the plot to these points.

Thanks

    Do you know what projection the DEM is using?  If so, you can load it without the .prj and choose the projection from a list when prompted by Global Mapper. Presumably, the source of the data should be able to tell you what projection it is using.

    The .prj is a text file, rename it to *.txt and post it as an attachment.  Putting it into a zip archive would work as well.
