I'm getting this error when i try to place a .jpg file into illustrator. It opens fine in photoshop, it opens in Mac on Preview...

Its only 200mb, i've opened larger files. I've tried closing illustrator re-opening, i've tried opening a new document and placing it in there and still an error...

Can you export the jpeg to a tiff in Mac Preview and Place the tiff into Illustrator?

Or save as in PS to a tiff?

There are flavors of JPG that Illustrator can't open.

Open it in Photoshop and try and re-save it from there.

Anything special with that file?

You did "Save as" in Photoshop? Which options?

if there is some issue in file due to corrupt liks consider upgrating illustrator to a version above 24.1..

there have been fixes to ignore the corrupt links.

Here is the solution.   I had assests placed into a document...some were placed png's and some were created with the pen tool in the document.  I figured out that one of the assets was corrupting the file. So you will need to find that asset.  I opened a new document and placed each asset in one at a time.  After each one, I attempted to export the jpg.....didn't have a problem until I got to the asset...the one created with the pen tool.  I had used a pattern fill for those images and then put a stylized inner glow on them......that inner glow was corrupting my file.  Problem solved!
