live recording - audio playback too slow

    Hello all.

    I recorded a live gig on a laptop using an echo indigo card with Tracktion to an external hard drive, which I belive is formated to FAT32 as opposed to the laptop - a windows XP machine.

    When playing back from the hardrive on the laptop everything sounds wonderful! But the time is all off - waaaay too slow - when tracks are bounced to 16 bit. Also, if the files are imported to a different hard drive, they play back at the same slowness. I can get it back on track by increasing the rate of speed the track is played back within Tracktion, which will do, I suppose. But what did I do wrong in the first place? What could it have been? The only thing I can think of is the FAT 32 format vs. NTFS. Is this the case?

    Have you checked the samplerate? Did you maybe export to 48kHz instead of 44.1?
