I’ve just started using Audacity to digitise old tapes.
I’ve recorded Elton John’s ‘Yellow Brick Road’ album and created a ‘Yellow Brick Road_data’ folder and have a Yellow Brick Road.aup file within this folder (along with sub folders for d0 to d06 and e00.
I now realise that I shouldn’t have moved these default files and folders from the ‘temporary files’ folder, but I created an Audacity Project Folder into which I moved all the above.
Now, when trying to open my Yellow Brick Road-aup file I get a message saying - Couldn’t find the project data folder: “Yellow Brick Road_data” (even though it’s viewable in the File Open window.
Could anyone help me with fixing this problem?
Actually when I transcribe tapes and LPs I never bother to Save an Audacity Project at all. Rather I just record the material perform any editing, place track markers and then export a set of WAV files. Then close the project without Saving it.
The _data folder and the .AUP file must be in the same location.
For example, if the project was saved as “mytest” then there will be a file called “mytest.aup” and a folder called “mytest_data”. The file and the folder must be side by side in the same directory.
The folder name must not be changed or Audacity will not be able to find it.
