Error: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 765

I’m using version 2.0.5. I obtained the .exe installer. My computer locked up while recording a sermon at church. When I tried to recover the project I received the Error: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 765. Is there a way to recover the file and do I have a problem that will continue to happen?

Was it a USB recording device? That could mean you are connecting it to a USB hub instead of to an empty USB port on the computer, and/or your Audacity project rate is too high and/or you are short of computer resources.

If you were connecting to the motherboard inputs on the computer, your audio drivers may need updating or correcting. See Updating Sound Device Drivers - Audacity Wiki .

You need to failsafe against computer failure. Run a duplicate send to a hard disk recorder, for example.

Assuming line 765 is the last line but one, you can fix it thus: .

If you prefer, please attach the AUTOSAVE file from:

  • Windows 2000/XP: Documents and SettingsApplication DataAudacityAutoSave
  • Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8: UsersAppDataRoamingAudacityAutoSave

You may have to show hidden files to see the AUTOSAVE file. See: How to see hidden files in Windows .
