    I'm using Word for Mac 2008. Suddenly, when I try to save a file (that I
    have been editing for the past few weeks), I get this error message:

    A file error has occurred. Check your network connections or make sure the
    disk is properly inserted and not defective."

    I am not using a network or any kind of external disk. I can save it as a
    *.doc file, but not as a *.docx file.

  2. It suggests that the file may be partially corrupt. Try saving it as an XML
    file, close it, open it and SaveAs a docx file again. If it fails again, try
    running the Office Repair from Office Setup.

    Thank you, that seemed to work fine.

  4. Sometimes saving as xml or html removes minor corruptions to the file
    structure that cannot be seen viewing the document.
