I am using win 7 32 on a netbook. Have used audacity many times and for years on it. Vs 2.1. I have installed the llame patch. worked for a while and now gives me error cant find. Reinstalled LLame, no different. Unistalled audacity and reinstalled, still same problem. Help. I cant get it to import windows media audio file.
I presume that you mean Audacity 2.1.0. That version is very old now.
I presume that you mean LAME (one “L” and usually capitalized).
I’d suggest that you remove both Audacity and LAME from your machine, then:
- Get the current (EXE) version of Audacity from here http://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows/
- During the installation, select the option to reset preferences. You will be prompted to confirm resetting preferences on first run after installing.
- Get and install the LAME by following these instruction http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/installing_and_updating_audacity_on_windows.html#winlame
Help. I cant get it to import windows media audio file.
LAME is NOT used for importing. it’s only for exporting (creating) MP3s.
If you want to import (open) a WMA file, you might need to install the optional [u]FFmpeg Import/Export library[/u]. FFmpeg allows you to import/export many different formats, but I’m not sure about WMA.
Yes WMA V2 can be exported. Most WMA types can be imported except WMA Lossless 24-bit.
