  I've had a number of problems saving PSD files with heavilly layered images, esspecially in the 4.0.1 update. Here are a number of suggestions: Try removing the transparency masks or colapsing any layer masks, as the anti-aliasing along trasparent images seems to give Photoshop4 a hard time. Also try flattening a the image (not into the backround layer, delete the backround layer and flatten it to Layer0 as the Backround has different propeties then regular layers) then saving the file as a as flat PSD.  This way you'll know whether the issue is a problem in interpreting the layers, or merely a problem recording the image as a PSD.

   If you REALLY,REALLY get stuck, then you can email me the seperate layers as Targa files, and I'll take a look at the recontructed file, and see if I can tell you what's wrong.

I'm sorry that it took so long to reply to your soultion. I did try it but I got the same error(s). Not because it was not a solution but because, in fact, it was a hardware problem. Specifically, the AMD 233 K6 on-board cache! By disabeling it in the BIOS I was able to eliminate the problem entirely... In addition to other problems that I had like Painter 5.0 locking up but I did not realise that they were related. You should try turning on/off the CPU cache and System cache (SDRAM) to see if it makes a difference on your system.
Thanks for your reply.
