When I'm trying to save the word file, it gives me an error message saying that unrecoverable disk error.

Here's the message I get

"There is an unrecoverable disk error on file ~WRL0004
The disk you are working on has a media problem that prevents Word from using it.
Try the following:
* Try formatting another disk
* Save the document to another disk.

What sort of error is it? How should I fix it.
Please do help me

Do you have a 3.5" Floppy in the Floppy drive and are trying to save to it? Or are you trying to save to your computer somewhere and then that message comes up?

Not to the floppy drive. The message pops up when I trying to save it to my hard disk itself.

I have exactly the same problem and the chkdsk, virus check and registry mechanic solutions proferred elsewher none seem to help me. The fault corrupts the file I am working on even saved as it is.

I have XP/ Word 2000, using HDD only (70% free) with no network drive. I get 5 error messages in series:

1 as above
2 word failed reading from this file (wrlnnn.tmp) please restore the network connection or replace teh FDD
3 A table in this doc has become corrupted. To recover convert table to text table
4 word cannot complete teh save due to file permission error
5 word has lost data due to bad network connection or missing FDD

Hi, I am Sanjeev. I am an IT administrator. I am also facing the same problem on many PCs in our office. I have winxpsp2, msoffice 2003 and Kaspersky 7 antivirus. I have checked that there is no error on disk, there is lot of free space available. How can the same problem exist on many pcs at a time? If someone has a solution Pls post here. Thanks

Have you tried a disk cleanup?
Specifically try to delete the wrlnn.tmp file. (or the offending file)
It sounds like that file is corrupt and word keeps trying to write to it.
Usually word will write temp file while it is in composition and then write to disk when saved and then delete the .tmp
If the temp file is corrupt it will crash and not be deleted.
