Default Access Violation Error

Has anyone ever seen this message when trying to open a session file in pro tools 7.3.1
"Could Not Complete Playback Engine Command because Access Violation Occured"

Session was delivered on a dvd, I copied it to my my hard drive and tried to open it from there and I get the above message. I have a Dell I6400 1.83 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 60 GB HDD @ 7200rpm, M Box Mini. I also move the file to my external 500 GB HDD @ 7200rpm conneced via firewire and got the same error message. Any suggestions?

Default Re: Access Violation Error

Access violations can be caused by quite a number of different issues, including but not limited to, out of date plugins, using illegal ("cracked") versions of plugins, compressed files on the hard drive, hard drive errors, unsupported hardware, etc.

So, some quick things to check;
  1. Make sure all of your plugins are up to date, valid versions
  2. make sure you are using the latest version of the PACE driver from www.paceap.com
  3. check your hard drive for errors
  4. Check to make sure the drive is not full
  5. Check to make sure that the drive and/or it's folders has not been compressed (running the Windows "Disk Cleanup" on a drive can cause this)

If you could please post a plugin list using the utility in the Tech Support Folder, That will allow us to identify any plugins that you have that may be causing this problem due to being out of date or unsupported.

It would also be extremely helpful if you posted details about your system as directed in the General Troubleshooting post at the top of the post list. More info about the session might help as well, if you know it (how many tracks? What sample rate/bit depth? any video in the session? etc)
