Magix software can be fickle at times. All I can suggest is that you are very careful with files and directories associated with the working files of the software. One tiny change will produce a file not found response. You can sometimes manually take it the missing file, but it's messy.
I suggest that any outputted files are not directly changed, but left where they are. If you want to do with something afterwards create a new folder and copy the files you want into that folder. Then change those files.
If you look at the original files that you worked on, you will see around four files near it. Deleting any of these files will produce that response. If you alter any of the original files you worked, you will get the same response. Because the Magix files around it will no longer match with the file you altered.
Using a USB key is the worst thing you can do when you are video editing.
When you are editing video it is best to have the video clips on your main hard drive for the best Play back and rendering performance.
Video editing software doesn't actually change the original files, it just remembers what parts of the videos you want to use and then saves that memory in a project file, it does not save the video files. when you render the video it will make a new video file.
If you make any changes to the project files (Pictures and videos) in the project (e.g. name change, location, re-save) the video editing software will no longer be able to link the files back to the project and will then prompt you to re-link the files.
Also the performance of video editing software relies a lot on the data transfer speed. when you are using a USB drive you are cutting the performance down BIG time.
When you are using VideoStudio save all the files you are editing to the hard drive in one folder. when you are done and you want to transfer the project off, select File | Smart Package. What this will do is gather all of the project files and allow you to save to a USB drive and you can transfer the project to any other computer and open the project using VideoStudio without the relinking issue.
Check under Usage and check that all the images are valid and updated. If these are correct, check whether the images are quark EPS files, if they are place the files in illustrator or photoshop (DO NOT OPEN THEM) and then save them in the appropriate format. Before you do this ensure that you have copies of these files .

Set Play options for the droplet:
a. Override Action “Open” Commands

Choose a destination for the processed files from the Destination menu:
a. None Leaves the files open without saving changes (unless the action includes a Save command).
b. Save And Close Saves the files in their current location, overwriting the original files.
c. Folder Saves the processed files to another location. Click Choose to specify the destination folder.
You can record an action that saves using a specified file name and
folder. If you do this and deselect Override Action “Save As” Commands,
the same file is overwritten each time. If you record your Save As step
in the action without specifying a file name, the droplet saves it to
the same folder each time but uses the file name of the document being
If the action includes a Save As
command, choose Override Action “Save As” Commands to make sure files
are saved to the folder you specified (or to their original folder if
you chose Save And Close.) To use this option, the action must contain
a Save As command, whether or not it specifies a save location or file
name; otherwise, no files are saved.

action, then use the Override Action “Save As” Commands option to make
sure that your files are saved where you specify in the Batch command.
you chose Folder as the destination, specify a file-naming convention
and select file compatibility options for the processed files:
a. For File Naming,
select elements from the pop‑up menus or enter text into the fields to
be combined into the default names for all files. Elements include
document name, serial number or letter, file creation date, and file
extension. Starting Serial Number specifies the starting number for any
serial number fields. Serial letter fields always start with the letter
“A” for the first file.
b. For Compatibility, choose Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX to make file names compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX operating systems.
Select an option for error processing from the Errors pop‑up menu:
a. Stop For Errors Suspends the process until you confirm the error message.
b. Log Errors To File
Records each error in a file without stopping the process. If errors
are logged to a file, a message appears after processing. To review the
error file, open it in a text editor after the Batch command runs.
Hi, sorry you are having problems,
Well, here is what error -37 is:
Code: error -37bdNamErr
Description:Bad file name (File System Error)
Basically, it is saying you cannot save a file by that name in that place....
Did you try saving it elsewhere on your Mac, like on the desktop ?
Just a side note, Apple stopped development on AppleWorks some time ago ( 3 years ) in favour of iWork. I highly recommend getting the newest version of iWork 09, it's compatible with all your Works documents and is really built for MacOS X 10.5, Leopard.
What do you mean whe you say “ Before I reimaged the machine ..” ?
1. Verify that you have sufficient disk space for saving these files (They can be rather large, so make sure you have several MB free. Usually you would get a better error, but it's worth checking. Also be sure that you are saving to a location you have write access to - try the Desktop to be sure.
2. Has this app ever worked for you? Were you the user who installed it? If yes, have you upgraded your OS or changed location of the program since it last ran successfully? If you were not the primary user who installed it, or if you upgraded OS software since first installing and runing this app, our best bet may be to uninstall then reinstall Photoshop Elements, to be sure it has full access to all necessary components.
