To resolve this issue, have a company administrator of the account select the “Enable User-Defined Conversion” option. Choose Setup > Image Presets to access this option.

Where are the Media Cart items stored?
The media cart is stored in local Flash cache. SPS doesn’t set any limitation on the
maximum assets that you can add into media cart, but the Flash runtime controls it.
It’s possible that media cart will be cleaned automatically if there are many entries in that cache.
Find the following description from the official Flash runtime Help:
"Local disk space considerations. Local shared objects have some limitations that are important to consider as you design your application.
Sometimes, SWF files aren't allowed to write local shared objects, and sometimes the data stored in local shared objects can be deleted without your knowledge. Flash Player users can manage the disk space that is available to individual domains or to all domains. When users decrease the amount of disk space available, some local shared objects can be deleted.
Flash Player users also have privacy controls that can prevent third-party domains (domains other than the domain in the current browser address bar) from reading or writing local shared objects. On Mac OS, starting with AIR 3.3, the location for local shared objects changed, so if you upgrade to the 3.3 namespace, it can appear as if the objects were lost.”
