It sounds like the directory where OpenTTD wants to write the files to doesn't have permission to write. Check your directory's permissions.

This guide may be helpful:

Before doing that, you may also want to consider checking the hard drive for errors. It might be that the part of the disk where your OpenTTD installation is saved is corrupt. Running a disk check could fix the error, and make everything OK again. Or, if it cannot fix it, it might mark the sector as bad, which would mean you'd have to re-install the files but they'd get copied to a new place known to be free of errors.
