What version of Photoshop?
What OS version?

Did your filename or path to the location being saved have anything odd in it?

OK, then something is going wrong at the OS level with that volume.

(the other possibility was non-roman/unicode characters causing problems on some filesystems)

thanks for replaying.
I cant even open the 'save for web' dialog.
after I click 'save for web', the error dialogbox shows up.

Ah, that is an important detail.

Has SaveForWeb ever worked on your system?
Have you changed anything about the system drive, or the Photoshop files since installing Photoshop?

OK, you may need to reinstall Photoshop to repair the required plugins and data files.
