Can't save digital elevation model (DEM) to GeoTiff in ArcGIS 10.1

Hello,

When I try to export a DEM in ArcCatalog 10.1 as a GeoTiff, I get an error (see below). If I try to do this through the Toolbox and CopyRaster, I get the same error message. Any ideas on what's going on? These are run-of-the-mill DEMs downloaded from the USGS site as Arc files.

Thanks
Manny
