    photoshop cs3 file error message

    I am running CS3, and frequently get the following error message:
    'Could not complete your request because it is not a valid Photoshop

    and cannot open certain files.
    They are photoshop files, created in Photoshop, and only used in

    Photoshop, and I am unable to open them - I am losing huge amounts of

    work and time

    Try opening your Photoshop file in Illustrator (choosing "Convert Photoshop Layers to Objects…").
    This works with CS but I don't remember if this worked with earlier versions.

    Also problem might be in preferences.

    Photoshop sometimes gets stuck because of a corrupt preferences file.

    1. While holding down all three Ctrl+Alt+Shift buttons open Photoshop or a file that opens with Photoshop
    2. You should get a prompt asking if you want to "delete the Photoshop settings file".
    3. Click Yes.

    This will reset the preferences file.

    And some useful references as adding assist....
