I am a student trying to complete my final project due in at the end of the week and I now can’t open one of my files. I have found the offender but do not know enough about codes and metadata to fix the problem. PLEASE HELPPPPPP!!!
First: make a backup copy of the .AUP file (just in case )
Try changing line 10 from:
<tag name="TITLE" value="èuÌd Effects - Foley - Uncork Wine Bottle Routine - Int - CU - Cork Pop."/>
<tag name="TITLE" value="Effects - Foley - Uncork Wine Bottle Routine - Int - CU - Cork Pop."/>
Only use a plain text editor (such as NotePad or NotePad++) and not a word processor.
Take care that the name file extension are not changed when you save the edited file.
Also, check that you are using the latest version of Audacity (currently 2.0.3 http://audacityteam.org/download/)
You can check the version number of your current installation by looking in “Help menu > About Audacity”.
I tried this again and I couldn’t get it to work. Every time I try to open in Audacity a message comes up saying “Audacity did not recognize the type of file…” Are there any other things I can try? Also does ‘Word Wrap’ effect the .aup file?
That depends on what program you are using for editing.
You MUST use a plain text editor (such as NotePad or NotePad++). Word processors (such as “Word”, “Write”, “Open Office”, “WordStar”…) will mess up the file.
Word wrap in NotePad and NotePad++ only affects the display and does not change the file contents.
