Can you copy the file to your internal disk using the system's interface?

What is the name of the files? Does it contain any non-latin letters?

Is your disk working? Have you checked it?

 

Illustrator has issues with external disks. Does it work saving to your harddisk?

 

And also: which system and Illustrator version is it?
