I tried that, Steve, but getting the same “Audacity did not recognise the type of file …” error as when I try Import; also tried dragging the LOF file from Explorer into the Audacity pane but taht doesn’t work either.
I’m wondering if maybe I need some sort of plugin to do this - I am using Version 2.1.2 with all default settings.
It is a partition on an internal drive. I’m not quite sure where you are going with this or why the location should matter provided the path is right in the LOF file … I would have thought that if there were an issue with the path or location, that would show up as a file error rather than the file type not being recognised. The path seems fine, when I copy it and paste into Windows Explorer, the file opens and plays ok in Groove, my default mp3 player.
Well LOF files work fine for me, so I’m going through things that I can see are different on your system to my system. I’m running out of ideas.
Are you able to make any LOF file work? Try something really simple - just a plain text (ANSI) LOF file, saved to “Documents”, listing one, know to be good WAV file, also saved in “Documents”. If you can get something to work, then you can change one thing at a time until it breaks, and then you will know where the problem is.
