Sometimes Photoshop doesn't seem to work quite right. The easiest way to cure basic Photoshop ills is to replace a corrupted Prefs file. The easiest way to do that is simply delete the file and let Photoshop generate a new one to replace it. To restore Photoshop to its default settings, hold down (Command-Option-Shift) [Ctrl+Alt+Shift] when starting the program.

One way to help prevent corruption of the Photoshop Prefs is to lock the file with one of these methods:

In Mac OS 9, locate the Prefs file in the Finder and press Command-I to open Get Info. Select the Locked check box.

Windows users should find the Prefs file in My Computer and click on it once to highlight it. From the File menu, select Properties. Select the Read-only check box, and click OK

which version of photoshop are you using ?

I had a similar problem - and I found a cure:
OPen your files with AcDsee convert them to the same format & save them, Thats it.

Dont't know why or how AcDsee cures photoshop files, but it helped my already several times.
Dont't have experience with all the supported file formats but BMP and JPEG works perfect.
PSD ... I guess, works fine too. check your AcDsee version.

well I cant seem to find my prefs file...  i checked out the tutorials but no luck.
I run win xp pro..

it seems that image ready is causing the problems..
if I load a file into image ready from PS... then save it in image ready.. and go back to PS i get the error... that it is open and cannot be saved and then it shuts down and I try to reopen the file and I get that corrupt error..

I tried reisntalling also.. with no luck.

Going to give what mathias said a try ....

I run win xp pro as well and I was able to find the prefs file. This is the exact name "Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Prefs.psp"
for photoshop 7, and this is the path under xp

C:\Documents and Settings\ikitaychik\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\7.0\Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Settings

"ikitaychik" is the user name

I'm also running in the same environment, and updated Photoshop 7/ImageReady 7 to 7.0.1 at the link below and the problem was resolved; hopefully if your issue is still unresolved, this will help you.

If the issue is related to type / layer and this error message evoloved, again, 7.0.1 fixes it. Specifically, Photoshop 7.0 can create a text layer that is written incorrectly into a PSD, TIFF, or PDF file.   More here:
