'Error Saving Image'

Recommended Posts

I'm unable to take screen shots, I get the message 'Error Saving Image' from the game when I try.

The correct folder is in the correct place. The attempt to take a shot dutifully creates a subfolder with the right date-stamp, but the folder itself is empty.

I have plenty of space on the hard drive (>60 GB), I toggled the bmp/jpg options in the Options menu, I still get the error message.

Any ideas?

The only reason that springs to mind is that you are either looking in the wrong user account's folder or that the security settings prevent you from write access to the folder. If, for example, you copied the "My Documents" folder from an NTFS partition of a previous/different Windows installation the old user IDs can get transferred. Windows then regards them as belonging to a different, unknown user, and blocks access to them. As an administrator you can adopt ownership of these old folders, and/or change other access restrictions, but they're not automatically gone.

Finally, maybe an overly concerned other software is blocking the write access?

Windows Defender, a personal firewall, a virus checker, ...?

I'm running XP; is it plausible/possible that I need to disable XP's inherent firewall before I try to take screenies?

I have to drop shields to join an MP session, is the issue I'm having perhaps a consequence of that?

I had that problem in the past when I ran resource hungry apps prior to running SB. In my case photoshop. I think it is a result of a memory leak. In your case mybe 3DS.

The solution for me was to simply restart my computer before playing SB.

I would be highly surprised if that was the case.

In fact, you shouldn't even have to disable the firewall while playing SB Pro as long as you can configure it to let communication pass through selected ports and for selected applications (namely SB Pro PE). But since some firewalls allow this fine tuning, and others don't, I can't really say if and how this would be possible in your individual case.

I've had the same issue come and go. I use the "print screen" button, then paste it into photoshop as a work-around when the problem crops up.
