Could not save because of a program error

  1. Default Could not save because of a program error

    I am getting this message when I try to save my document in Photoshop CS2. It has happened twice today - a file I've been working on and saving all of a sudden won't save b/c of this "program error".

    I tried saving in different formats (TIFF, JPG, PSD), renaming the file and saving to different locations.

    The first time it happened I quit Photoshop without saving, rebooted my computer (PowerBook G4) and opened the file back up and WAS able to save. Now it's happening again and I don't want to close the program and lose all the work I've done on the file.

    Does anyone know what's causing this error? Thanks

    How full are your HDs and do you have your Scratch space on a separate one from your boot drive?

    I would try running Cocktail and DiskWarrior.

    Can you save in a new user?

    I'm having this same problem also now.

  5. Default Re: Could not save because of a program error

    Same questions apply to you too.

  6. Default Re: Could not save because of a program error

    Had this problem but saved OK when I saved file (Save as) to an external firewire HD instead of my main HD. Quit and restarted Photoshop, copied file back to main HD. All OK again.

    just had the same issue, using an intel imac. saving to my external hdd solved the problem. Now to avoid it in future do i need to look at getting more ram (as ps is running through rosetta) ... currently on 1 gig, or are there some settings i need to change?! thanks

  8. Default Re: Could not save because of a program error

    I don't think it's a RAM issue. I have 4.5 gig on my G5. It's as if PS forgets where the internal HDD is. Or maybe something to do with scratch disks.

  9. Default Re: Could not save because of a program error

    Happens all the time on my G5 tower. 2 Gigs of RAM and 63 Gigs of drive space available. I have to save to an alternate drive or server volume. Only happens when I try and save to the local main drive.

  10. Default Re: Could not save because of a program error

    Happens to me often also. CS2 and CS3. Plenty of ram and HD space. Like Michael, saving to a different volume allows me to save. Pain in the butt though.

    Any other fixes?
