Sounds like a corrupt file. Maybe it never finished downloading.
Are these PDFs that have been received via e-mail ?
In doing the research on this error, it seems that there isn'nt any commonality except that these are PDFs being received either from the web or via e-mail. In one case the fella solved it my realizing that the image was 24/bit but had been saved as 8/bit (not sure if that was a source problem or transfer issue). But that might have been a one off solution.
A lot of users were complaining about this problem after receiving a PDF via e-mail. Sending PDFs through e-mail wthout using an archive format such as "zip/WinRAR" can be problematic as some e-mail servers/clients assume that the PDF is text and munge it.
Is this one user using the same e-mail client with the exact same settings as everyone else ?
no corupt file opens fine on adobe reader 8
I am running Adobe 9 Pro on a Windows XP machine and get this "insufficient data for an image" occasionally and if I close out and try again the file will usually open. My colleagues are using the same version of Adobe Pro with Windows 7 and are not experiencing the same issue. Can anyone help... other than to suggestion upgrading to Windows 7? Thanks!
I don't believe the issue people are experiencing has anything to do with any form of corruption.
