    Sounds like a generic 'could not write a file' error, the obvious cause being the disk is full. Other causes may be that you are trying to overwrite a read-only file, or there is a problem with the filename or path length. There could even be a problem with your director installation - some projector resources might be missing.

    I can almost guarantee that it will be a mac running os9. i use pcs
    here but colleagues of mine who are mac users have had that happen to
    them recently, not with director though, with appications that produce
    fairly weighty files quark and final cut pro.

    one of the machines did this shortly prior to dying.

    we still haven't worked out exactly what is causing it but my best
    guess is a virus even despite the fact we have updated norton and
    scanned the machines. (we've tried all the other stuff too like
    zapping the p-ram and rebuilding the desktop still no luck).

    sorry i can't help further but this might start you in the right
    direction.

    Thanks all for replying. Turns out it is simply the path name is to long and
    as a result this error message ocurs. Have now solved the problem by
    creating projector outside of deep subdirectories.
