Default help with greyed out audio

i have an mbox and a Mac ibook, i recently saved a recording session on a cd, and when i opened it again from the cd, the audio tracks
in the edit window were greyed out. all the audio tracks are saved with the session on the cd.
does anyone know why that is? i'm not a very advanced user.

When you open a session, it really should be from a Hard Drive and not on fixed media (CD-R.) Once it's on the CD, it's uneditable so maybe thats why the tracks are greyed out.

Default Re: help with greyed out audio

Hello. Runcie the issue is missing audio files. The reason they are missing is because their root folder was different from the other one where the session was saved from. In simple terms, for example, session was created and saved in folder (or drive or partition) A but some audio files were imported from folder B. When folder A is moved (whether to be saved or to another drive or partition) only the files in folder A will go.

Here is how you find out where those missing files can be found. Click on the Regions List toolbar on the right side of the Edit window. A drop down menu will appear. Go to the one that says 'Show Full Pathname'. When that happens, the regions will change names. Before they were called Audio 1_01, etc. or whatever name you gave them. Now they will be called Drive A/Pro Tools/Session A/Audio 1_01 or something similar. Basically it will show you which drive it came from, what folder to look in, etc.

There is nothing you can do to the session on CD-R. That's done. However, to add those missing files after the fact, try the Workspace window. Better yet, save them again from scratch. Now either move the files to the appropriate folder, or do a 'Save Session Copy In' and include all pertinent files. Good luck!
