HI there. Ive been using audacity for a while without any issue. Today, i recorded a 91 minute reading, and as usual asked to export it- and when i tried to do so via my desktop, it said it could not access the target file. I also could not save it, nor the save a compressed version, and it crashed 2x…fortunately recovered the file both time it came back online, but this is quite extreme-im afraid to turn audacity off-and i need some walking through this.
what do i need to do? im using 2.1-i saw another thread involving a plug in-not sure about that…
would love some help as this was a live reading i cannot lose for my client. very very important.
Are you running Audacity from the DMG? This can cause many problems. Try exporting the project as WAV or FLAC (smaller size but still perfect quality). Try using a file name that only contains a to z characters and numbers. If you are overwriting another file, make sure the other file can be written to.
Also try File > Save Project As… and choose a new name for the project .
Since i have this macbook pro 2,5 Ghz Intel Core i7 running with mac os X:10.7.5, i cannot use any version of Audacity, I tried 2.0.4, it crashes at launch, 2.0.5 same, 2.0.3 idem. So i think the problem is coming from my machine or mac os.
Is there somewhere a solution to finally use Audacity on my mac?
