CS4 was a dog anyway ;)
You might read this forum for some help, but I don' think it will completely solve the problem:
A workaround for now is to save out the file as a PSD PDF.
You might also look at making sure JAVA for OS X is up to date. CS6 seems to work for most.

It's pretty much all back working, (scanner, printers, wacom, Osirix, Firefox, etc.) but in Full from the CD reinstall - CS4 has lost the ability to place PSD files in AI. It will take jpgs. On start up, the program says "some plug ins have been updated" - restart to utilize, but restarting does nada.
