You have used characters in the names which aren't allowed in file
names? There is already a file named that in the directory? You haven't
got write access to the directory?
What it means is that audacity has said to the OS "I want to create a
file named XXXXX" and the OS has said "You can't". Why is something that
probably only the OS knows, not audacity.
