I have some files on a pen drive in the formats indicated in the topic. However, they do not open in Audacity and present the message attachment. This is normal in Audacity or there would be a solution/configuration to not need to copy and paste the files on the computer itself.
There’s currently a bug logged for Audacity 3.0.2 because it fails to import from FAT formatted drives (including FAT16, FAT32 and other versions).
It is intentional (necessary) that Audacity 3.x will refuse to open “projects” from FAT formatted drives, because the FAT format does not support secure database transactions (the FAT format is too old). Audacity “should” be able to import from FAT, but currently it can’t, and that’s a bug.
The workaround is to copy the MP3 / WAV files to the computer’s internal drive, and import the copy.
Yes, I understand your teaching perfectly. But we can consider this a very elementary problem and I say that I love Audacity. I’ll do what you suggested is copy the files into the computer.
Do you know if there’s a new update for Audacity?
Which plugin would be more conveneitne for mastering to “fat” the audio volume without saturating?
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 version after that.
I say that I’m looking for a plugin that does a final mastering job that is, that we can increase the audio volume without blowing out/saturating the sound ok.
Currently I only know the W1 Limiter plugin, but it seems that I don’t understand how it works.
