Audacity crashes during .Mp3 import.

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Windows.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Windows.

  • Please state which version of Windows you are using, the exact three-section version of Audacity from "Help menu > About Audacity".

  • Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
    The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

No error number or anything.


Take a look in the Application Event Log, there should be an entry from Source "Application Error" for each crash. Hit Windows-X or right-click the start icon, select "Event Viewer" from the menu, then you should find the "Application" log under "Windows Logs". Post a copy of the contents of the log entry's text box and we may be able to find some clue there.

https://www.virustotal.com/ displays the SHA-256 right at the top. The MD5 and SHA-1 hashes can be found on the "Details" tab. As a bonus, anti-virus scans from 60+ engines is also provided.

Keep in mind that uploading private information is not always a great idea. 7-Zip provides a context menu in Windows Explorer. Otherwise, one can run PowerShell and use the "Get-FileHash" command (IIRC, the default algorithm is SHA-256.) From a UNIXish shell, "sha256sum" or sometimes "sha256" can be used.
