I'm having the same error, surprisingly it started suddenly, one day it was working and the other it wasn't. The permissions are set properly as well (0777)! Help would be greatly appreciated! – Hosh Sadiq Jul 19 '12 at 15:33

Check the permissions in your wp-content/uploads folder (and subfolders) - the web server needs to be able to write to it.
