creating map package

Does anybody know what the limitations are for creating a map package in ArcMap 10?  Sometimes it works but more often it doesn't.  I get the error when it is compressing the package.  The exact error is, "An error occurred while compressing the package."  I feel like it has something to do with the amount of data I am asking it to compress but I am not sure.  Does it have anything to do with my desktop memory??

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  I am trying to make ArcReader a viable solution for non-users.

Thank you.
