File Does Not Exist Or Is Not A Supported Audio File

Question

I'm having problems trying to edit a mp3 audio file I recorded. When I try to open the file to edit it I get a message that says "The file does not exist or is not a supported audio file." I have been doing this stuff for a few years now using the exact same recorder and have never had a problem. Here is the one difference with this recording from all the other recordings that I have done. On this recording I forgot to shut the recorder off and let it run over night. I stopped the recording the next day. The recorder was still recording and there was still room on the SD card but I did run the size of the file up to 921.25 MB. I know the recording is there, I can hear it when played on windows media player. Any suggestions on how I can edit this recording down to a proper size would be great.

What version (correct name) of the Roxio software are you using?

 

What application name of that suite are you using?

I'm using version 14.0.36.0

I don't understand your second question.

 

And what is version 14.0.36.0 called by name!

 

Are you using 'Edit Audio, Roxio Sound Editor?

I think 14.0.36.0 might be one of the Creatot NXT suites, but only the original poster can tell us which one (s)he has.

Quick guess is that the program is having problems with the size of the file. Some (most?) audio editors convert .MP3 files to .WAV files for editing. Depending on the sample rate of the original file, it could very well exceed 2GB, which gets "weird" for an actual .WAV format (if it creates the header chunks, which are signed values, they roll over and go into negative territory).

 

Best bet would be to try some other editors to get it trimmed down to some smaller size and work with that.

 

Hope that helps.

Izzy,

 

we still need to know the name of your Roxio suite, but if it's Creator NXT you'll have Easy Audio Capture [Music-Audio > Capture Audio from Sound Card]

 

With that application you can play your file through Windows Media Player, and capture it back to the file format of your choice with Easy Audio Capture.

 

What is the name of your Roxio suite?

Sorry about the delay in my response. Life gets in the way sometimes. Anyway yes, Roxio Creator NXT is what I am using.

Good, I'll get this topic shifted into the NXT forum.

 

Can you play your file through WMP and capture it to MP3 or WAV with Easy Audio Capture?

That worked, I did an audio capture like you said and was then able to edit it down. Thank you very much. Its amazing how you can use the same options on a program for years and overlook the other options that you never use. Roxio already had the tools I needed. Thank you for pointing it out to me. God Bless.
