Digidesign,

What a shame that this is what people need to handle their files now.

I'm going to give it a try.

You're certainly not the only person who gets this problem. I've been struggling with this one for a long time now (since 7.4). I get this on my 2.8 iMac with a 003R and on my macbook with a variety of LE hardware. All the usual prefs/database/cache/permissions stuff doesn't help. Weirdly I have it working fine on 20 G5s with mbox2s, some macbooks and on a mac pro running HD 7.4.

The only difference between these systems that I can see is that on the misbehaving systems I have the original music production toolkit (as far as I can see I have all the latest versions of the plugins and the CS releases of PT) wheras the others have the MPT2. I'm going to have to level the iMac and start again doing a basic install with no additional plugins as a test system and isolate the problem (lot of work though...).

The specific problem I get is dragging and dropping into the edit window from the workspace browser. I can audition with the conform to tempo button engaged but if I try to drag into PT it will give me a watch, then a beachball and eventually show PT as not responding in the force quit window. I get exactly the same response if I try to drag and drop from Finder.

As a workaround I tend to audition in the workspace browser and then use import audio (which works fine). Its a funny issue as I've only ever seen it on my own personal systems as opposed to the 25 systems I maintain at work.

Anybody else got this issue? If so what plugins and toolkits are you running?

hey thanks for the reply, though it doesnt bode well does it?? id want to say its your tools but?? heres hoping!!

actually thats not my problem, but could be. i had my HDD die and had to be replaced and while at it i thought.., ill just upgrade to lepard, and though a better system i didnt realise i would have to upgrade every bit of production software i have.

LE 7.3 will not work on lepard.., so i have to upgrade.., some have made a lot on this latest consumer deal and some have lost a lot, like myself who was crusing finacually until the HDD went down and hell broke loss.

reeading all this one wonders which is better to get.., LE 7.4 over LE 8.., i read the install for PT8 and theres some serious BACK UP YOUR SYSTEM.., whith more software one has to buy no doubt though i wonder why time machine on laepard wil not work or was not suggested to back up??

it seems i might be up for a free upgrade to 7.4 because i brought this 7.3 after Oct 2007?? but maybe theres fine print because i couldnt fid any download??

cheers.

Could we possibly get a Pro Tools crash report from someone experiencing these problems?

You can send it as a text file to: vi [at] digidesign [dot] com

Please be sure to put the tread number (1405795) in the subject of your message.

The only thing I haven't done is reinstall the OS.

When you do that, does it preserve all of your applications and user settings etc? i.e. is it a big pain in the ass?

Same problem here, Audio file arrives after 2-4 minutes after dragging it from Workspace . Does someone know what causes this problem?

iMac i7
Mac OS 10.6.2
