Live 8 - Missing media files??

The project I'm currently working on in Live 8 has failed to load loads of audio files... It displays the error message 'Media files are missing. Please click here to learn more'. It then displays ten media files which it has failed to load, the location is labelled as 'missing', though the correct file path is listed at the bottom of the screen...

Does anyone know how I can fix this? (I've tried reopening the project, and restarting my computer).

Did you make Live rescan the media?

Re: Live 8 - Missing media files??

ahh... I am generally not a Live guy but went through the same thing a few weeks ago. You have Media File browser or Manager or something like that, and one of ht eoptions there, I can post step by step in an hour and a half when I get home and in front of Live, but can't remember off the top of my head ... But if you do find that option -- what I found is -- run it more than once , even when it tells you some files are missing, blah blah, run it anyway, and specify which directory in advance so you don't spend an hour waiting for it to find something.

Phew, that seems to have done it... Bit of a panic there for a minute, that would have been MANY hours of lost time. Cheers for your help tekkmo

Re: Live 8 - Missing media files??

I am also a new user of Ableton.

Now, I have the ASL file of the project I was working on(which a friend sent me over), but now I can't work on it because of the media scan problem.
I've done several scans but it still won't help.

It were some audio recordings, I don't know if that has got something to do with it.

^ sigh... Your friend needs to choose "Collect all and Save" and then zip the project folder up and send you that.

Follow the learn more instructions in the Help View. However the automatic scan is not too intelligent (does not work too well). In the instructions you'll also find info on manual repair. That works best.

Most DAW's other than Reason make you do something of this nature, and even then, if you plan on sending the file, you need to make sure to self contain the files in Reason. Nothing is as easy as it seems.
