Error message "A I/0-error has occured in the file" (free translated from Swedish). What to do?

Hello!
I keep getting the error message "A I/O-error has occured in the file" (free translated from Swedish) when I try to save changes to a .ai-file in Illustrator. I have never experienced that before. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is? Greatful for a quick answer, since I can't get any work done =/ Thank you in advance!

alu,
If it is a specific file, one thing often tried first is to create a new document and File>Place the corrupted one to see how much may be rescued that way (remember to tick Paste remembers Layers in the Layer palette flyout/dropdown first, and to untick it afterwards).
Here is a website where you can see whether it can rescue the file, and if it can, you may pay for a subscription to have it done,
http://www.recoverytoolbox.com/buy_illustrator.html
and another similar website,
http://markzware.com/adobe-software/fix-illustrator-file-unknown-error-occurred-pdf2dtp-fi le-recovery/
As far as I remember, the former is for Win and the latter for Mac.
Here are a few pages about struggling with it yourself:

If it is not just a certain file, you may have a look at the list.
The following is a general list of things you may try when the issue is not in a specific file (you may have tried/done some of them already); 1) and 2) are the easy ones for temporary strangenesses, and 3) and 4) are specifically aimed at possibly corrupt preferences); 5) is a list in itself, and 6) is the last resort.
1) Close down Illy and open again;
2) Restart the computer (you may do that up to 3 times);
3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (easy but irreversible);
4) Move the folder (follow the link with that name) with Illy closed (more tedious but also more thorough and reversible);
5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options (follow the link with that name, Item 7) is a list of usual suspects among other applications that may disturb and confuse Illy, Item 15) applies to CC, CS6, and maybe CS5);
Even more seriously, you may:
6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool (if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6/CC), and reinstall.

  • HP scanning error: "An error has occurred saving the file because it could not be written to..

     HP scanning error: “An error has occurred saving the file because it could not be written to.  Check the properties for the file to make sure it is not read-only.” Dr. Google finds others with this problem.  Some claim that this is caused by an upgrade of Apple OS10 (which I did do).  One claims that HP has a "patch" for this problem. If I try to quit HP scan, it won't quit and freezes my computer. Here's the odd thing.  I have no problem scanning in a colored page from Scientific American either before or after this error (after rebooting each time), but simple black and white documents started just today to give the error message above.

    Thank you for the link however if I understood all of the instructions I would still be reluctant to try this on my own especially from a third unknown party where some of the information may be wrong and/or lost in translation. (Google translation at the end of this comment). The instructions say to uninstall the software.  So if I uninstall the original HP software am I using the original disk to reinstall and then personalize again?What about all of the updates since I originally installed the software? I found the Disk Utility but what is "gatekeeper"And I am using OS X 10.9.1 that is current because I downloaded the latest upgrade.  How would I reinstall it?And at what point do I go to the URL for the software drivers and the patch? This is just not practical for someone who is not proficient in troubleshooting applications.I switched to Apple because I don't want to have to go through this kind of process, take my time to fix the application and potentially mess up my system .  WHy should I have to try to figure out how to retrieve the normal function in this case, of my All-In-One. If it is so simple why can't HP develop the fix and make it available? Unfortunately right now I have to find an alternative to scan some important business documents that are due today. Since I am using an older printer by technology standards even though it is working fine I may be looking for a replacement and HP may no longer be at the top of my list given that the problem appears to affect other HP models. No need to answer my questions,  I'm not going to try this fix based on these instructions. Please HP provide a fix for this problem with the scanner and MAC OS X 10.9.1 compatibility! Translation of the information on the suggested link: We hereby send you a guide that should help you in solving the problem .Please carry the following: 1 Please uninstall the software again .Goto -> Programs - > Hewlett -Packard - > HP Uninstaller 2 Please repair permissions on your Mac .Go -> Utilities -> Disk Utility - > Repair Disk Permissions . 3 Please disable ' gatekeeper ' on your Mac . 4 Reinstall the full software for MAC 10.6 and patch for 10.7 / 10.8 / 10.9. HP Scanjet Software and Drivers for Mac OS X v10.6 features :http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/ ? sp4ts.oid = 457 534 & spf_p.tpst = swdMain & spf_p.prp_swdMain = wsrp - navigationalState 3Di % dx % 253D % 257CswItem % 253Dsj_78355_5 % 257CswEnvOID % 253D219 % 257CitemLocale % 253D % 253D % % 257Cs wLang 257Cmode % 253D % 257Caction % 253DdriverDocument & javax.portlet.begCacheTok = com.vignette.cachetoken & javax.portlet.endCacheTok = com.vignette.cachetoken

  • This is an error from my HP scanner. How can I fix the problem? An error has occurred saving the file because it could not be written to. Check the properties for the file to make sure it is not read-only.

    I recently uploaded the Maverick operating system. I wanted to scan some things on my HP Printer/Scanner and could not . This is the error message I received: An  error has occurred saving the file because it could not be written to.   Check the properties for the file to make sure it is not read-only. I am a novice with the computer and have no one to help. I hope someone knows an easy fix.
    Thank you

    This worked for me:
    "Although it is not a 'fix' for the HP issue, I did find a workaround that helped me. In the Preferences Panel in MacOS X you can pull up the Printer/Scanner preferences and scan directly from OS X. I'd not known of this prior to posting here and it worked like a charm."
    "Of course, HP should still update their software, but it's good to know that Apple has it covered for them."

  • "An error has occurred saving the file because it could not be written to. Check ..."

    I have the familiar Mavericks issue of failing to save scanned files from my Mac:
     "An error has occurred saving the file because it could not be written to. Check the properties for the file to make sure it is not read-only."
    As far as I can see, there has been no resolution to this issue, despite reassurances dating to last fall (2013).
    The support website acts funky, too, sending me around in circles when I try to download the drivers; it may be a Safari-only problem, but still, please fix your software!

    Hi,
    What is your printer model? what Mac OS X version?
    Have you tried scanning with Image Capture or Preview?

    After having upgraded my MacBook to Snow Leopard, the following error message pops when I try to access iTunes: "The file iTunes Library.itl cannot be read because it was created by a new version of iTunes".  So, now after the upgrade, I cannot access iTunes.  How do I resolve this??
    Thanks

    zepel has it, but perhaps some more detail will help.
    Empty/corrupt library after upgrade/crash
    Hopefully it's not been too long since you last upgraded iTunes, in fact if you get an empty/incomplete library immediately after upgrading then with the following steps you shouldn't lose a thing or need to do any further housekeeping. In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder. Rename iTunes Library.itl as iTunes Library (Corrupt).itl and then rename the restored file as iTunes Library.itl. Start iTunes. Should all be good, bar any recent additions to or deletions from your library.
    See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to catch up with any changes since the backup file was created.
    When you get it all working make a backup!

I've tried disabling my antivirus software, closing my browser for install and nothing.Can someone please help me? I'm using Firefox.

    Hi!
    I had the exact same issue, being on a mac. If you are on a mac and the connection error message occurs, then use this link http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/latest/help/install_flash_player_osx.dmg
    It allows you to download it offline, which is what I used.

    Hi I had a similar issue to you, I could connect to the router but no internet. Here is my explanation of how I sorted it.....I hope this works for you.
    *To anyone that is reading this it appears that the problem lay in the airport setting: IPV6: set to 'Automatically'. I turned it off (after reading someones plight on MacFixIt) & everything is back to normal.*
    *The worrying thing is although my problem was extreme with other computers on the network being locked out nothing was changed, one minute it worked the next it didn't. Reading on other forums it appears to be a problem with laptops (but I could be mistaken). A lot of people on the Macfixit forum are complaining of network just dropping out even when they are next to the router.*
    *I hope this is the fix (although I dont know why it suddenly went to sh*t!) & I hope my hair pulling & trawling the forums can help someone else out.*
    Much Respect

    Running Mac OS X Version 10.7.2  Lion on a MacBook Pro

    Any ideas?

    Hi Frank,
    Thanks.
    My HD is a "normal" HD, so I guess it's HFS+. (According to Disk Utility it is Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
    The NAS is WD MyBook Live Duo. I just plugged into my Time Machine.
    I am relocating using Aperture "relocate originals for project" under the File tab.
    Ahh, thanks for the answer to question 1.
    Yes, I am trying to relocate them, but tried different things to find the problem.
    And the problem seems to be that when an image gets an extra attribute (when it's downloaded from the internet, when it is comes from a mail message) then Aperture seems not to be able to move the file.
    I.e. Aperture presumeably asks the Finder or kernel to perform this task, and this then fails because of the extra attirbutes that were set.
    I now found a way of manually removing the extra attributes, but that is a pain.
    Think of this normal workflow:
    - someone sends me an email containing images
    - I move the images to my Desktop
    - I then import the images into Aperture
    - I then decide to relocate my images for that project to my NAS
    Then is when this problem occurs.
    So I just tried to relocate to another place on my HD.
    That works fine.
    I looked again at the error message.
    And it says "could not set attributes com.apple.metadata:kMDItemDownloadedDate on destination file descriptor" .
    So, yes, it seems like it has to do with the NAS not supporting setting the extra attributes.
    And as long as there are no extra attributes on an image, there is no problem.
    (Not completely true, but I have another thread about that)
    Thanks Frank, I have to digest this a bit.
    Regards
    Jan

  • Since I updated to Firefox 8 on Mac OSX 10.4.11, Firefox will not open anymore (not even previous versions downloaded via Safari). I get the error message 'You cannot use Firefox with this version of Mac OSX' (translated from Dutch).

    I have tried creating a new profile, problem remains the same.
    None of the 3 accounts on this desktop can use Firefox anymore. This has never been a problem. Today (14.11.11) I updated Firefox to 8, and nothing anymore. Via Safari I downloaded Firefox 7 to reinstall, same error message.
