Sharepoint Designer file check in issue

Scenario:
I was working on a new site collection master page and was able to save the file without an issue but when I tried check in the file . I got the following error

Error : Can not perform this operation.The file is no longer checked out or has been deleted?

Solution:

I couldn't find out the exact reason but sometimes the SPD check in and out are not in sync with content DB.

So choices are :

Navigate the document library directly using Browser you are getting this problem and Check In using Browser ( SharePoint UI ) itself.

OR

Navigate the Content and Structures page and then go to the library you are getting this problem and Check In using Browser ( SharePoint UI ) itself.

you can either install the office 2003 hotfix (compatibility pack) or make sure the title column is filled. Else you can also make all columns in the content type optional
