When I try to export audio from Audacity to any destination -- the same external drive, another external drive, or the internal hard disk, exporting goes smoothly for a few seconds and then I hear the "device disconnected" tone. For whatever reason, the export process is causing my external drives to disconnect. Has anyone else had issues with this? No other program seems to cause this problem with my external drives.
No, I have never seen it reported. Did previous versions of Audacity do it?
What format are you exporting to? If you are exporting to something like 64-bit float WAV at high sample rate, perhaps your drives can't cope with the data throughput?
