    any ideas?

     

     

    Can you be more specific about what numbers you have for Bridge CS5 after update and how you did reset the preferences.

     

    What files are you trying to generate as PDF and do you see the output module and files but can't you save them or is there no Output module at all?

     

    And do save them on the same disk or to an external disk?

    and its odd it happens in the CS4 also

     

    That is indeed the weird thing but to me this seems also the reason to first look at you OS system itself because it is almost impossible that both CS4 and CS5 have same fault behavior in one day I would think.

     

    Make sure you have sufficient disk space and also double check if you have read and write permissions for the disk and folder you are trying to save the PDF files to (choose folder in finder and the hit cmd + i or get info from menu file) and at the bottom of the window check the permission settings.

     

    Also run Apple Disk Utility to check and repair permissions.

    The folder was locked.  The error message should of told me that.

     

     

    cross posting, glad this worked out and that you solved it your self!
