I work on a PC Intel Windows XP computer and the syntax for the path to the file is correct in this specific environment. Now, either you work also on a PC system and you do not have the permissions to create a new file directly under the top level of the disk C, or you work on a Mac or Linux/Unix system and the syntax above is not the correct one. So, change the file name to a directory/folder in which you have write access. Or use a file name without any directory/folder specification to use the default one provided by your system. I have uploaded an updated notebook at http://homepages.nyu.edu/~jmg336/mathematica/DianaExportOutput.nb that identifies the Mathematica version and platform in use, and also the file name use the default settings from your system.
