Following the comments in 2.3.12 Importing data via Stat/Transfer, I downloaded V 10 of Stat/Transfer to run the demo version an an SPSS .sav file I have. The transfer to an R workspace went according to plan, with the following message:

Tue Feb 15 13:05:46 2011: You might want to save the info message
Tue Feb 15 13:05:46 2011: Stat/Transfer is in trial mode. 38 out of 618 total cases were not transferred. Please purchase to transfer all of your cases.

When I try to load the workspace file into R 2.12.1 OS X, I get:

Error in load(file.choose()) :
ReadItem: unknown type 32, perhaps written by later version of R

Re: Stat/Transfer problems
I am not familiar with this error. I use Stat/Transfer on a windows platform and have never had an issue using R version 10, 11, or 12. I would suggest contacting Stat/Transfer directly.
