Default Time and Date not right

I have a mac OSX 11.4 and I'm running protools 7.1 Le. for some reason when I save a file, the time is always saved on 8:50pm and the dates are always 6/7/2010. I wanted to know if any one can help me correct this problem

Default Re: Time and Date not right

Are your times and dates correct for files saved with other applications?

Does the time and date display correctly in the Finder menu bar?

You might try resetting it within the System Preferences; switch to a different time zone, exit, and then go back and reset it to the correct time zone.

If you're experiencing time and date issues, you may need to zap the PRAM. Some of the PRAM data is dependent on the internal battery, which will wear out over time. If your Mac has some years on it, you should probably test the battery and change it if it appears low. Typically, the battery is a 3.6 V, small format and readily available.

cheers, Dave

Time and Date shows perfect, so it's not the battery I'll try a reset

Zapping the PRAM may not help relocate session files, but may help fix the date and time problem. Here's a link from Apple regarding how to do this, and what zapping the PRAM effects:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1379

Before you zap the PRAM, check to see if other applications are saving files with the correct date and time. If so, the problem may be specific to PTLE. If all apps are saving with the wrong date and time, you have a system issue and need to address that. Regardless, its probably worth doing some basic Mac maintenance (rebuild directory, repair permissions, check hard drives, etc.).

Be sure to review the trouble shooting guidelines from Avid:

PTLE tends to be very demanding on host computers, so you have to follow Avid's guidelines and system configurations closely.
