    Hello Dear,
    I’m having problems uploading batches of media files. From the very beguining I have I/O error. ONLY ONCE everything went fine. I have used Chrome and Firefox 5 to perform the tasks and both gave me the same results. I have 1MB upload on my internet conection.
    I need to post my slideshows and is taking ages to upload one by one, what can I do?
    Yours sincerely,
    Victor

    It could be the issue related to the preview problem you are having. Could you follow the instructions on that post and then see if it fixes this issue too? Thanks.

    Hello :-) I have tried on the three internet browsers and in all of them I have the troubles.

    Would you please try reinstalling Flash?

    Hello macmanx,

    Ok, I will try to reinstall flash on all the browsers, but which one do you want me to install? I have the flash plug in, the flash that comes with the whole Adobe Master Collection CS5.5: Catalyst, Builder, Professional, should I uninstall all of them and then reinstall them?

    Just the Flash plugin this time, I don’t think the application could be interfering.

    Ok, then I will uninstall the plug in in all the browsers, no?
    I will let you know, because in my notebook I have no problems with the uploading and Chrome and Firefox are syncronize, so they have the same.
    Let me see if I am able to work that solution.

    Yes, definitely uninstall it from other browsers. I have a feeling your Flash plugin installation may be corrupt, so there could be other things wrong with it too.

    Well, other things may be wrong too. I uninstall the Flash Player 10 active X and the Flash player 10 plug in from the pc, restart it. Then I went to Adobe.com using Chrome and told me Chrome uses its own flash. I tried to upload a batch of picts and gave me the I/o error. The I went to Firefox and downloaded the Flas Player plug in and install it. Reopened Firefox and try the same batch (one I was able to upload from the notebook without problems) It gave me the I/O problems.
    IE9 does a very weird thing, the bottons on the post and pages do not work, it shows me only the add picture, etc, No the text editors. But do nothing when I press them.
    Well anyway, what are the other steps I can do?

    Hm, ok that’s rather odd.

    Do you have a firewall or third-party security software? If so, would you mind disabling it temporarily to check?

    No, I have no problem doing that. But I have the same anti-virus – Firewall on the PC and the notebook (Comodo Internet Security Premium) Let me disable it and try the upload again.

    Damn, no. I deactivated the firewall, the anti-virus, the defence and everything related to Comodo. Then I tried Chrome and Firefox for the uploading, no luck, 6%, 23% and so on and then I/O error.
    Should I uninstall the flash again? But Chrome works with the one build in. And the notebook works fine. It has to be something else that is on this PC.
    Are you tired already? Well you solve two out of four issues.

    I have intalled Air, Shockwave, Creative suit 4 Master Collection (Premier and after effects), Master Collection 5.5 (all except the two above), Photoshop Lightroom, Picasa. All those are related with the picture dealing, but I cannot tell you if it affects. Ah Cooliris too.

    If Chrome is working, then I still have a feeling that the problem is with Flash installed on Firefox, though it could also be an issue with something else in Firefox.

    Are you running any add-ons in Firefox? If so, would you mind temporarily disabling them?

    It seems I have explain myself wrongly, Chrome is not working properly either. The Flash uploader works fine in the notebook in all browsers. It is in this PC that no browser works. But anyway I will try to disable all add ons in firefox and let you know.

    Uff, my dear macmanx, nothing is working. I deactivated all plug ins and addons except the Flash. I/O error. Then I unisntall flash again, restart the OS, install a specific version for Mozilla, Firefox, opera. Restart the OS and try again. I/O erros and Chrome the same.
    This is going to be a tought one.

    My goodness, no kidding. :(

    Just to sure, the notebook works, but the desktop doesn’t? And they’re both on the same network?

    Are they running the same OS?

    Ok, yes, they are on the same network with the same firewall – antivirus, and roughly similar programs.The OS is different, Windows 7 on the PC, Windows Vista on notebook. Do you want me to try again on the notebook or tell you the versions I have install of the Flash and other programs?

    Well, the exact same pictures on the notebook are flying toward wordpress, everything fine, using Chrome.
    Now with Firefox, flying from the notebook to wordpress without a problem.
    The Flash version is the same: 10.3.181.14

    I just sent a private ticket via email so you can send the original files.
