Hello,

When I try and open a certain song that I have never had problems opening a few days ago, GB quits. When I try and open the song from the finder, GB partially loads up with no tracks, no new tracks can be created and nothing plays. It's all grey, except for the play, rewind, ff buttons.
Other songs seem to load fine.
A few days ago I archived all my GB songs and have them in an archive folder. I have unarchived them and tried opening songs. I have the same problem with the same song as if I loaded it up from the finder, partial load.
I've rebooted from system prefences->startup disk with no luck and now I'm very scared that I may start losing a lot of hard work.

Please help, all suggestions are appreciated,

Robert

Some things you could try:

Have you tried creating a brand new song, and if so, what happens?
Does your song contain samples which you may have moved to a different disk location?
Have you tried fixing disk permissions?
Have you tried copying your 'troubled' song file and opening this?

kill GB's preferences and/or try to open the songs with a new user.

It works!

Holy guacamole.

Well, this is what happen.
The song that was giving me problems had a duplicate that I had saved with some compression changes on it. This was before I was having this problem. I tried the duplicate for kicks and it opened with all the tracks and settings in tact. I still do not know what happen to the original, so I just deleted it.
Could something have gone bad when I duped it?

I do not know for sure.

But let me say again, I much appreciated all your input.

Many thanks,
Robert
