Can no longer place a PSD into Ai? (CS5)

All of a sudden I cannot place a PSD file into Adobe illustrator? When I drag it in nothing happens. If I use the menu and try to place one nothing happens. If I open up an old file that use to work fine the images now don't appear and just show X'd boxes in keyline view as if the linkage is broken but it's not?


I have no clue what to do now? Anyone run into this before? Very frustrating.

    Yes this has been posted on this forum before, I wish such an issue would be posted at a top of the forum to help users like yourself avoid the worries.


    But I am glad you found the problem.


    BTW I understand Linotype is looking into the issue which shows they have good intentions.

    Hello, same problem here, and it's not only concerning .psd files: no raster image file type whatsoever can be placed in Illustrator 5.1, no .png, no .tif, no .jpeg
