I've been trying to save all kinds of PDF files but the same error appears: 
"This is an illustrator file that was saved without pdf content"

I already check the "Create PDF Compatible File"

Please clarify to exactly what you are doing to create this error.
Are you doing file >> Save As >> PDF

This sounds like an error you would receive when placing a .ai InDesgin, that was saved without PDF compatible on.

Where are you saving the file? Does that happen when you save it to your local harddisk?
