I'm having this same problem but I think it has something to do with a app. i use on my iphone called iflash ready. If i delete the photos i used that app on I can use album stater or elements that i also bought thinking it was a album starter problem. I hope that iflash fixes this i like the app. Does anyone else use this app or one similar?
The only thing that solved my problem was moving elements onto a window vista pc no matter what i did on my xp I still got the error. I even reformated my hard drive and still the error. Adobe was unable to figure out the problem.
I have a weird setup; My C: drive is NOT a C: Drive; it's an I: drive, thanks to Windows renumbering my drive letters when I reinstalled the system, and it reserved C: for my card reader. After that, I also saw that error in Photoshop Elements, but I believe it would also happen for Starter Edition. I believe that the program is attempting to access a file location that is inaccessible.
It wasn't until I re-did the organization and location of all my files in Organizer so they were all connected, and on the right drive letter (I:, in my case), that the errors went away.
I think you can just ignore the error by clicking OK, or you could fix it by making sure that NO files Organized by the program are referencing a hard drive other than one that is always connected.
I started having this problem as soon as I upgraded my iphone software to the OSI 4.1 (I think I got that technologic stuff said right). I kept getting an error message and could not fix the problem either. I finally got smart and decided to try a different OLDER software --Adobe Photoshop Album 2.0. This software downloaded my pictures instantly and I got to select it as my software default for when I plug in my iphone 4. I hope this helps someone.
I just ran into this exact same error with CS4 Adobe Bridge which launches Photo Downloader. I had upgraded to an iPhone 4s and started taking videos (MOV files on the phone) in addition to pictures. When I encounter this error, it was during the preview step when photo downloader was reading the contents from the iPhone 4s. I used windows explorer to manually move the MOV files to the computer then again used CS4 Adobe Bridge to relaunch Photo Downloader and this time no error!
