    Error Msg when importing PSD CS3 into Fireworks

    cpm593h
      I'm getting a totally unhelpful "an error occurred" error msg when importing a layered
      Photoshop CS3 file into FW CS3. Grrr...

      I'm not finding good guidelines for importing from Adobe.
      Further, I'm not happy with the loss of Image Ready, which was
      a simple tool to do rollovers, etc from Photoshop.

      Can anyone supply some things to watch for in terms of creating
      PSD files for use in Fireworks?

      This file has a number of layers to create rollovers for navbars.

          Can you upload the file and post a link? Did you create the file in PS
          or was it supplied to you? If you created it, consider creating your web
          files in Fireworks to begin with. Unlike IR, it's not just a
          post-production slicing tool. There are many web-centric fetures in FW
          that can speed up your workflow for web and screen destined projects.

          Also in PS CS3, from what I understand, most of the useful IR features
          were integrated into PS.
