I am new to microarray analysis and have been trying to use marray (in R
2.1.0) to read in data from GenePix (.gpr) files, but it hasn't worked...

There are 6 .gpr files (e.g. samcellINF8a.gpr as below), the sample
description .txt file and a .gal file in my directory (folder containing
files is called Samsfish).  I've been trying to copy the example in the
vignette entittled "Quick Start Guide for marray".  It worked fine up
until the following line of code:

> data <- read.GenePix(targets=SamsfishTargets)

...which gives me this error message:

Error in file(con, "r") : unable to open connection
In addition: Warning message:
cannot open file './samcellINF8a.gpr'

(or variations on a theme)

Do you know what this means?

What can I do about it?

Many thanks,
