Garageband Crashes when importing from iTunes

Garageband 08 - up to date
ITunes - 8.1.1 (10 - up to date - library is held on an Airport Disk
White MacBook 80GB
Tiger
New problem just started occurring in Garageband. When you try to import a track from iTunes (via the media library screen in garageband, ie drag and drop), Garageband just quits back to the desktop. (Asks if you want to reopen, try again etc, but no effect).
All other functions of Garageband appear to work fine - including exporting TO ITunes, and also importing photos through media library or garageband samples.
Have tried repairing file permissions in disk utilities, and deleting the GB preferences file (as advised in Apple Shop) but no effect.
This worked fine until a few days ago, and had been done hundreds of times with no problems.
Any ideas?

Just to say that I'm having the same problem. The iTunes version (8.1.1) came in more recently than the last update on GB. I'm trying to think if there have been any general OS X updates recently, but I'm not sure.
The workaround is fine, but if anyone hears about a patch so that it works normally, I'd be happy to know.

  • CS5 crash when importing from external library

    Hello.
    I am using Flash CS5 on Win7 64 bit. I have made a flash site. On this site I am trying to add a photo gallery. I bought a flash XML photogallery from Active Den. The gallery is working fine but to get this into my site I need to import the library items into my flash site fla file. What happens is this. I drag the main movie clip from the photo gallery fla onte the stage of my flash site fla. So far so good. When publishing it shows up but without some parts.
    When trying to import the missing items from the photo gallery fla to my flash site fla the program crashes. Done it a billion times now and allways the same result. All but the main movie clip causes the program to crash on importing/dragging to stage.
    Installed the latest updates but no luck.
    Please help!!!!
    Sincerely
    Ronny

    No I tried both neither seems to be working on my system. I used Duplin version 2.5 because 2.6 requires Leopard and I am running tiger.
    this is a mess, and I haven't done anything but import the files, I don't want to start setting up play list until I can figure out one of two things.
    Why it did it in the first place, I could delete everything and reimport.
    Or how to clean it up with doing it one track at a time.
    Thanks

  • BI Admin Tool crashes when importing from Essbase

    Hi folks,
    I'm trying to import an Essbase cube into my OBIEE RPD and it is causing the Admin Tool to crash with a generic Windows error msg that "BI Admin Tool has stopped working and Windows is looking for a solution"..
    I'm using OBIEE 10.3.1.4 with all components, including BI Server installed on my local machine which is Windows 7 32-bit. The Essbase server is on a different machine. The RPD is working fine for several other data sources, and crashes only when I try to import from Essbase. The Essbase server is also working fine. The crash happens regardless of whether I'm in online or offline mode. I even tried to create a new RPD in case the other one was corrupted, but even the new one crashes.
    I have Essbase client installed on the same machine as BI Server and my environment variables seem fine. All ports on the Essbase server machine are open and I can ping it from the BI Server machine, so it is not a network issue. I know this version of OBI is not officially supported on Windows 7, but it's working fine in all other respects. Has anyone had a similar problem in the past?
    Appreciate any advise.
    thanks,
    Axe

    I wonder if cube import only works when using a 32-bit Essbase client?

  • Premiere Elements 11 crashes when importing from a DVD

    Hi, I'm having trouble with my Adobe Premiere Elements 11. 
    I am trying to get footage off a set of DVDs I shot a while back (shot on a DVD cam, I forget what  the model is cuz it wasnt mine)  Anyway,  Everything went fine for the 1st 3 DVDs,  but when I got to the 4th, when I went to "get media" it does nothing for awhile, then if you try to click it freezes and the dialog box pops up saying the program is not responding and closes. 
    Also,  after that happened,  it does the same thing with the other DVDs when I go back to try them.  I can play it via my DVD player software, but Adobe crashes when I try to get the media.
    Also, after this error in adobe, my DVD drive locks and I can't eject via the manural button, and when i right click on the drive in My Computer hit eject, it says "error ejecting DVD-RW Drive" 
    I have to eaither log off/restart  or go into the properties and disable the drive and reenable to be able to eject the DVD.
    I really don't understand whats going on, and why its doing this.  Nothing changed on my computer inbetween ripping the DVD media, as I was doing them all back to back.  I would import from DVD, then export as WMV so I could send the footage to someone (the .VOB files wouldn't work for this and my file converters where not working right)
    I have done an uninstall and reinstall (with a registry clean in between) and even a system restore to a previous point to resolve another issue I was having. (Could not make new folders)
    But Adobe/DVD drive  is still having this issue.
    I'm running on an HP Pavilion dm4-1165dx Laptop with Win 7 64bit btw.  I can get exact specs later if its nessesary.   But it was working just fine until I got to the last DVD so IDK why it would just quit on me like this.

    John T.,
    You are correct. I probably was not clear in my question.
    If the miniDVD's were produced correctly, and all discs were finalized, first doing a Copy of those miniDVD discs to the HDD, would be my first step.
    While one can Import directly from DVD's, there are a couple of possible issues:
    The process will be much slower, than Importing from Copies on the HDD, especially an internal HDD.
    One will not have to have the particular miniDVD's inserted into the multi-drive (not possible with most computers and only one multi-drive.
    Good luck to the OP,

  • Computer/Windows crashing when downloading from iTunes 7.

    Hi everyone, thanks in advance for taking a look and helping me out. Just a few days ago I downloaded the new version of iTunes - 7.0. Until I did this, everything with iTunes and my iPod worked fine, no problems at all. However, once the new version was installed, when I try downloading something my computer shuts down and I get a blue screen telling me there was a serious error and Windows has been shut down. It has happened three times so far and ONLY when I am downloading files from iTunes music store.
    I tried to pause all the downloads I had going, since it is multiple downloads now, hoping that having only one download going at a time would fix the problem... it didn't. What's worse is the second time it did this my iTunes library was empty upon start up. Fortunately, I was able to restore it minus one episode of a TV show and an album.
    I'm hoping someone can tell me what may be going on with this. I can tell you that the first time it happened was when I tried to download all the episodes of the National Geographic podcast. It happened again when I was trying to download a season of a TV show (twice). The TV show was not harmed and over time I was able to get the entire season downloaded.
    When I restored my library by renaming a backup dated library as iTunes Library.xml it was missing an album I had downloaded the same day as well as an episode of another TV show I mentioned before. They are also not in the iTunes folder at all.
    This is really scaring me as I'm adraid to download anything, knowing I might be losing my library again and anything I had downloaded previously. I do have backups but nevertheless I can't back up every single thing that I download. I buy a lot of stuff on iTunes and that would mean hundreds of CD's, which is one of the reason I switched to digital music in the first place, to eliminate the amount of CD's I need to have around.
    I was also wondering if anyone could tell me how to search for the lost music files and add them back into my library... I'm hoping they're not gone forever, as I'll have to buy them again, which I personally think is wrong.
    Also, is there anyway I can make a copy of my iTunesLibrary.xml file each time I add something to it, so if this problem occurs again and wipes out my library all of the files I had in there previously are still there. I don't want to us a Library four days old as it might be missing lots of stuff.
    Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to give as much detail as possible. Thanks.

    However, once the new version was installed, when I try downloading something my computer shuts down and I get a blue screen telling me there was a serious error and Windows has been shut down. It has happened three times so far and ONLY when I am downloading files from iTunes music store.
    okay, let's get a minidump of the blue screen and send it to the Apple Engineers to see if they can make head or tail of it.
    To set up your machine to capture a minidump, right click on "My Computer", select "Properties", select the "Advanced" tab, select the "Startup and Recovery" Settings button, select "small memory dump" from the popup. When it crashes, look for the MiniDump file. It's usually in the folder "C:\WINDOWS\Minidump" and is called something like Mini<number>-<number>.dmp.
    collect the minidump, and send it to this email address
    in the email, include the URL to this thread so that the person who gets the email has some context, but also give as much information about the context of the crashing as you can.

  • Crash when Importing from Canon ZR800

    I just bought a Canon ZR800 MiniDV Camcorder. When I import into iMovie 08 it consistently causes iMovie to crash. I can then start the import from the point of the crash and it will proceed for a while and then crash again. Any suggestions?

    I just got a ZR800 today to use to import some tapes and I'm seeing similar issues on. The only way I can capture from the camera is to disconnect any firewire drives connected to the machine. I've tried on two different machines (one with 10.4 and one with 10.5), but using the same firewire external (LaCie D2 triple interface). Doesn't matter if the drive is plugged in via Firewire 400 or Firewire 800. Un-plug the drive and everything's fine.
    I'll try with another external drive once I've finished importing the video I need to get off the camera. I suspect, from other reports on the Net and here, that the behaviour will be the same with other firewire drives. I'll also give a USB drive a try.

  • FCP 7.01 crashes when importing from a DSR 11 tape deck.

    I am trying to import to FCP 7.01 some DV Pal footage from the DSR 11 tape deck. When I play the film it shows in the viewer fine, but if I then click the capture now button it crashes FCP. I have rebooted several times and it has happened about ten times consecutively. Any ideas why? I've been capturing using cards since getting the new system and not needed to do this before, but need to import a dvcam tape and can't do it.

    deck is connected via a firewire cable, device control is set to Firewire Pal, capture input DV Pal 48k Anamorphic, 5TB of space on scratch disk available. This is a new system and I have output to the deck fine for a previous job, but now have this issue with importing from the same deck. Crashes FCP every time.

  • Lighroom v2 crashes when importing from device

    I have a Mac with the latest OS. When I attempt to import from a device (CF card reader) in many cases I get the beach ball and end up having to force quit LR2. I then updated to 2.1. Same problem. After it crashes, I usually have to restart computer to get LR2 to work again.
    Sometimes I can get the import screen to come up. If I scroll down to view images, it will then crash. Or try to deselect an image.
    I can copy the images via the finder onto my HD and import them that way via LR with no issues. Just when I attempt to import via a device.
    Any ideas?

    I'm afraid I've had this problem for months and nothing seems to solve it - not even extensive emails with Adobe's crack team in sweden. It's bought me to my knees. I've tried a new hard drive, a new camera card, a new firewire reader, formatting the card, importing the files to the desktop and then importing to LR (which didn't work for me), changing cameras, reinstalling the OS, upgrading the OS, shutting down all other apps....everything. I get the pizza wheel of death and a total corruption of my catalogue. The problem is that it occurs intermittently so its hard to test for the fault systematically.
    The curious thing is that I have three macs and only one of them has this problem, so in the end I had to get rid of the macpro and buy a new one.
    However last week I just put a new hard drive in one of the machines that has been running LR fine for sometime and now that has started to crash too, so I'm wondering if there is a connection between the harddrive and LR. If anyone has a solution please let me know.
    ...please!!

  • Popping sounds in FCP when importing from itunes

    I'm trying to use a piece of music dwonloaded from itunes. listening ot the piece on itunes there are no "pops" or crackle sounds. Once imported to FCP and incerted inot my track it has annoying pops, suttle but they are there. How can I fix this?

    Music purchased through iTunes won't work in FCP. Because of rights issues.  You need to get the rights to use the music in certain projects.  While your project might not be for broadcast, or displaying on the web, Apple assumes it is. 
    You cannot just use any old music you want in projects you put up on the web and on TV. You need to get the rights to it.  YouTube will even pull your video down if it finds popular music and detects rights issues. If this is a family video not aimed at the web, well...that's different.  But still Apple prevents working imports due to the fact that FCP is PROFESSIONAL software, and most uses for it is for broadcast and web.

  • FCE crashes when importing from camera

    I'm using FCE 2.0.3 and a Panasonic NV-GS300 camcorder. I've installed the program with the camera on and connected (as recommended by Apple).
    No matter what 'easy settings' (or otherwise) FCE crashes before importing anything.
    The camera isn't included in the Apple list of supported camcorders- does this mean it will never be possible to use this camera with FCE?
    Importing into iMovie works fine. But I'm trying to avoid going through iMovie then into FCE.
    Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated.

  • Iphoto crashes when importing from SD card

    I found similar discussions but no solution.
    I am using snow leopard with Iphoto. I never had any problems but now I am not able to import pictures into the library. Iphoto crashes whenever I am trying to import from an SD card. I need to restart the computer to be able to use Iphoto again. Is there a limit of the library size? I read something about 250000 pictures but I am far away from this number. What might be the problem?

  • Low volume when importing from iTunes

    The volume level is fine when previewing in iMovie06 Media/Audio. After clicking "place at playhead", the imported audio track has very low volume.
    I tried other suggestions in this forum, including raising audio track level to 150%, and saving to CD and re-importing to iTunes as AIFF (which seemed to help a little), but still the volume level of the imported audio in iMovie is still way too low. This is originally a midi file my son created. It is not purchased or protected content. It imported into iTunes fine and sounds fine there. Had the same problem with a "jaws" audio clip downloaded free online. Fine in iTunes, barely audible after importing into iMovie.
    Experimenting, I made a brand new movie and only imported the audio clip, and the volume level was fine. So, it has something to do with the movie I'm working on.
    Help! I already blew a few hours on this issue and now am up against a deadline.

    Hi
    two ways
    a) Use an audio-editor like Audacity (freeware) and increase Your .aiff files
    b) You noticed that You can get the audio clip in to iMovie and amplify it to 150%
    • Copy this audio-clip. Paste it ontop of the first one = 300% amplified audio
    Do this as many times as You need it (until it gets audio distorsion)
    Yours Bengt W
