Trouble Transferring old logic projects

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a 80gB hard drive that i need to access in Pro 7. The projects have all been made in Logic 4.8. For some reason 10.4.2 tiger sees the audio files (sd2f/aiff) in these projects as Unix Executive Files :P whatever they are. I've tried changing the extentions and still no program can open them. Is there a way of making tiger see them as sd2f/aiff? They were all created on a G4 os9 mac - so there shouldnt be a problem, but being new to OSX i may be a bit munki :)

 

any help would be grateful

Why would it matter what tiger sees the files as as long as they open up in the logic project theyre attached to? Or is that the case - can logic not see the files?

Hi again JD

 

logic see the files but doesnt import them - it thinks they're all 8bit audio - which they're definately not. It converts the .lso fine but wants to abort the import of the sd2 becos of 8bits. The aiff/wavs import ok...i think...i only tried a couple of projects and the files are mostly sd2f

Hmmm, thats an odd one mate! Try converting an sd2 file to an aiff/wav and see if that works...if it does you'll need to convert them all. Bit of a pain in the arse but i dont see another way round it at the mo...ill have a think :pirate2:

ARGH!! i hope i dont have to do that. It's odd becos it sees the project when it has been burnt on a CD. imports them fine....it's just the data on the HD

 

Now that sounds like a weird one...have you tried copying a project to cd, then back onto the hd in a new folder and opening that as a test?
