[Qgis-us-user] KML conversion/use

I thought I might be able to export a layer as kml file to use in GoogleEarth or a GPS handheld. I tried right clicking a layer and then choosing Save As. Under Format I chose Keyhole Markup Language (kml) and added file name. Changed nothing else. Result was a Save error:Export to vector file failed.Error: creation of data source failed (OGR error:Failed to create KML file kml_SUMMIT.kml: kml_SUMMIT.kml: Permission denied)
I also tried zipping a folder of BOUNDARY shape files and uploading to Google Fusion Tables. Converted files to static KML file, which did open in GoogleEarth, but gave blank, black view. Clicking on Google Maps showed the file did give the proper location. Boundaries failed to display. Layer Style failed to transfer over.
Any suggestions?
