Re: Audio file (MP3/Wave) on a pen drive.

A new version (Audacity 3.0.3) is scheduled to be released in about a month, subject to satisfactory testing. The new version will probably not fix this problem with FAT format drives, but it does fix some other important issues. Hopefully the 'FAT' format problem will be fixed in the Audacity vers...

Re: automatic track detection when digitizing albums

1) If the LP had track timings, befire recording I would create a label track with the timings specified by the LP/LP cover. Even to the extebt of labelling the songs in advance.

Re: Can't open .aup at all

Yes it is - because from 3.0.0 onwards the entire data for a project is contained withn a single unified project database file.

Re: Issue with Save Project menu of Windows version 3.0.2

Do we have a workaround for this issue with 3.0.2 ... In 2.4.2 you were relying on the somewhat hidden visual cue of the grayness or otherwise of the "Save Project" (you have to click on the File menu and the hover over the initial "Save Project" to see the status of the second "Save project").

The project was saved correctly on her Desktop. Normally when that happens the .AUP file is created along with a folder that e...
