Hi Claire, not sure if this is relevant to your problem. It could be a 
network-setting-priviliges thing. Have you spoken to your technicians?
At our school, when you save a file from within an application to another 
network location (Windows network and operating system), you get a file name 
but 0kb file size.. Students can save into their own u:\ drive location no 
problem, but to submit work for assessment to our 'Student Assessment' 
folder which is on a dedicated network drive, they have to copy the file 
using windows explorer - helps with file management skills too! The slow 
problem is most likely some other network activity or something in the 
students actionscript, as Paul suggested.
