FATAL ERROR: DATABASE ERROR: Couldn't run query: SHOW FULL FIELDS IN `Gig` | Can't create/write to file '#sql_10ec_0.MYD' (Errcode: 17)
At line 397 in E:\Websites\wamp\www\AtomicSilver\sapphire\core\model\Database.php

I have been dogged with Fatal Errors for 2 days now. They appear random when ever db/build?flush=1 is called or even sometimes just running the admin or pages. if i keep hitting refresh the error will change and sometimes complete successfully.

Is this a memory error or permission error?

my build is the 2.2.1 stable from downloads.
Windows XP sp2
wamp 2.0
PHP 5.2.5
MySQL 5.0.45
Apache 2.2.6

Please Help

As it's a problem with your tables, try repairing all your tables. (PHPMyAdmin or cPanel have a GUI for this)
