Instead of looking up the io errors in a table on the web you can also ask Windows to convert the error numbers to a string for you. The function "SysErrorMessage" does that for you.

i'm sorry but all errors other than I/O errors and fatal errors are reported with the error codes returned by the Win32 error function. so the SysErrorMessage won't work...and the table in the site specified by scrapdog is not applicable...but thanks!

I'm not sure what you mean. The error 53 does get translated by SysErrorMessage. Please tell me an example for an error number that does not get translated. Then I'll see what we can do...

SysErrorMessage converts Win32 API error codes into strings.
What I need are i/o errors translations...thanks a lot everyone :)

i/o errors *ARE* win32 API errors!!

In other words: i/o errors are a part of win32 API errors. When building the win32 API error list, the i/o errors were first taken into this list, then other errors were added.
