after I've created new tablespace and new user:
CREATE TABLESPACE MAX DATAFILE 'c:\MAX01.dbf' SIZE 3800M REUSE DEFAULT STORAGE
(INITIAL 10240 NEXT 10240 MINEXTENTS 1 MAXEXTENTS 256 PCTINCREASE 0) ONLINE;
CREATE USER MAX IDENTIFIED BY MAX DEFAULT TABLESPACE MAX TEMPORARY TABLESPACE TEMP;
Could be cos its trying to create the table in tablespace TOM not MAX. Just because the default tablespace for MAX is MAX doesnt mean that imp will use it.
You can edit the dump file to change the tablespace specified to MAX (but be careful, use something like awk or sed) or alternatively let MAX share the TOM tablespace (you may need to grant quota on TOM to MAX). You could also use a tool like TOAD to generate a schema script to create all your tables (but with no data) and then use imp to import the data.
