Export WAV: disk full? Libsndfile says "garbage_here"

I don't understand what's wrong, i have normal permission to the folder and i tried other folders too. Only happens with WAV, FLAC and MP2 testedly ok.

And i wish there were "Paste as new file" / "Paste as new track" options for the selection. In image programs these are used continuously, and creating samples would benefit from this very much.

Cannot export WAV: disk full

Permanent link to this post Posted by kilves76 » Tue Jul 05, 2011 3:31 pm

Error while writing WAV (Microsoft) file (disk full?).
Libsndfile says "&"
--or other garbage inside "".

Other export works just fine. I have required permissions to write to folder and other format exports work ok.

Did you put wacky characters in your filename?

No punctuation. Upper and lower case letters, numbers, underscore and dash. That's it. All other characters fail either immediately or when you try to send a file to someone on a foreign computer.

Dates usually kill people. Today is not 7/5/11. It's 20110705. No punctuation marks.

Since I'm sometimes required to use older manual file transfer tools, I don't use spaces, either.

You can have wacky characters in your metadata, too, not just the filename. DId you put an "&" character inside the Title or Performer field? Crosby Stills Nash & Young? Forbidden.

Ensure that you are using standard characters (a-z, 0-9, space, hyphen, underscore) in file names.
Using dots and back-slash are a major "no" on Windows (illegal characters).

Which exact version of Audacity are you using? (look in "Help > About Audacity")

There's nothing funny anywhere, filename is BOOP1.WAV, standard US keyboard & encoding (on win7-64), metadata is empty. Just tried again, same thing. The garbage in popup is always different. Audacity 1.3.13-beta.

Just in case there are any invisible characters in the metadata, open the metadata editor and click on the "Clear" button, then the "OK" button, then try saving again.
(This is probably not the problem, but it would be useful to eliminate this possibility).

Are you writing to an internal hard drive?
What's the exact location that you are writing to?
Are you using a new file name or overwriting an existing file?
If you start a new (empty) Audacity project, and just generate a tone (Generate menu) then Export as a WAV file, do you have the same problem?

Works after clearing metadata, i just don't quite get what's wrong with this:

starting from major_brand:
mp42
Lavf52.94.0
0
isommp42
2011-02-14 14:15:30

doesn't look funny at all to me, but i'm happy to have export working, because WAV samples were the only thing i needed, so you can imagine the frustration level... :o

I noticed the same problem when I tried "Save Multiple", but it is actually worse.
The save operations completes but the files with the problem are corrupted and very small.
There is no notification from Audacity that any problem occurred.

It is easy to lose files this way. I was cleaning up and discarded the old versions before I noticed that the new version was garbage.

The issue that you are describing sounds nothing like the problem being discussed here - totally different symptoms.
Please start a new topic and describe what your set-up is, including which version or Windows and the full version number of Audacity, and what exactly the problem is and what steps you have taken so far to solve the issue.
Which "old version" are you talking about?
