Yesterday I gave up in exasperation trying to get my submission ready for the first wave of GAS recital pieces. Every time I tried to drag and drop, or copy, or import my .wav file to Audacity, all I got was either nothing in the space where the waveform usually appears, or a field of diagonal blue and white lines in that space. When nothing appeared, hitting play got no sound. With the blue/white lines the sound was there but the commands wouldn't work properly if at all. Tried it also on some of my past saved recital recordings that had previously worked fine in audacity (as recently as May)... same blue/white diagonal and no waveform.

Anyone have any clue what's going on here? Has my program file been corrupted or something?

Arrrrrggghhh

My only suggestion would be to uninstall and then reinstall the software. Good luck.

Thanks Monica. I tried the reinstall, but it still didn't work...same problem. It took a while, but I found a question about the same problem in one of the Audacity forums...turns out it was a problem with the temp files the program creates when you import or copy in a audio file...a conflict with permissions, no doubt due to some security software I run under. Solution was to make sure the temp files get written to someplace that I will be able to get at them. Problem solved.

Now I have a bigger problem....my recording sucks. frown Unfortunately, I know the solution for that one....work on it some more, or live with it as a true representation of how I play. cry
