Importing mp3 files to Audacity

I have a problem because every time I try to import a file to audacity, program shuts off. I would be greatful if somebody could help me :slight_smile:

Hello! I had just installed Audacity and I’m impressed by its potecial, but I can’t import a file to audacity. Every time I try to import a file, program shuts off. I would be greatful if somebody could help me :slight_smile:

Please describe what happens in more detail.
Also, check the file(s) at this web page to see if they really are MP3 files: https://mediaarea.net/MediaInfoOnline

When I import the file program works correctly for a couple of minutes, but then my computer freezes and program stops working. I think the problem is in the size of this file( 1,13GB ), because smaller files works correctly.

That is very large for an MP3 file. When imported into Audacity it is decoded into uncompressed audio data, which will be very much larger.
How much free space do you have on your C: drive?

That was it. I didn’t have enough space on my C: drive. Now everything works correctly. Thank you very much for your help :smiley:
