    Well, I am using the latest version of Google Chrome and everything was working fine till a few hours back.

    I’ll try clearing the browser cache and cookies plus will try restarting my computer.

    Will update.

    OOPS! I’m so sorry about the browser part above. I copied and pasted and hope I did not offend you. If your Flash is up to date then I’m flummoxed. :(
    How are you connecting to the Internet and WordPress.com? I’m wondering if that could be a factor.

    Chrome 11 is the stable version. Chrome 12 and 13 aren’t stable yet.

    Oh come on, there’s nothing to offend me.

    I am connecting to WordPress and Internet using my usual broadband connection.

    Everything else is working fine except for this stupid flash uploader.

    and i have chrome 12. I never applied for any beta so only the stable updates are applied on my chrome (auto-update) so i am hoping mine is a stable one.

    Are you sure 12 isn’t stable yet?

    Here’s my best suggestion which will peeve off some people. Try switching to Firefox 4.0.1 because Firefox and WordPress have always worked well for me.

    I’m putting on my crash helmet as I expect Chrome lovers may try to bash me. It’s fast but that’s the only good thing I have to say about it. lol :D

    it’s ok.
    There is Freedom of speech to save you.
    and
    Freedom of choice to let them continue using Chrome.
    lol :D

    i’ll update you on how I eventually get that flash uploader to work..

    Okay, I see this post from earlier today and now I am getting an IO message, which I’ve never had before. I’ve tried everything I can think of and that was recommended here…uninstall Adobe Active X and install new, upload new/different jpeg, download new Firefox, try IE, reboot wordpress, reboot computer…. I’m stuck! And still getting the IO error message. Help! Please! And Thanks!

    if you have tried all the troubleshooting outlined in this thread here https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/getting-io-error-when-trying-to-upload-media?replies=16#post-628999 without success and your browser version is up to date, then you will have to ask Staff for help. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    might sound illogical,
    but this is the way wordpress says ‘i wanna have sm fun troubling you…’

    Use the browser uploader for now, and try using the flash uploaded again tomorrow..

    it might hav given up his stubbornness by then..

    Thanks genobz and timethief, for your suggestions! It turns out that my antivirus program was somehow working against both wordpress and twitter. I uninstalled it and uploaded two different antivirus programs that are supposed to work well together, and now, it seems I have no problems. Thanks both, for your advice!

    I have experience this IO error too when I tried to upload new images. One thing I notice is that in my address bar, I am using the https instead of http. When I pull up the admin url using http://www.yourdoamin.com/wp-admin, the IO error never occur anymore.
