Protools -audio files are on volumes unsuitable for playback

Discussion in 'Mixing & Song Critique' started by cybercampbell, Jun 22, 2005.

  1. I've just upgraded to Tiger (Not sure if that's related) and I now get this error when I load up any of my protools sessions. I havn't changed anything else...still the same setup as I've had for a year now.

    I'm getting this error: audio files are on volumes unsuitable for playback

    this is my setup:

    Mac G4 400MHz
    Digi 002 (desk)
    Protools 6.9
    2 internal hard drives
    * 80gig HD with Tiger os10.4 system and all apps.
    * 80gig HD is my Audio drive with all my protools sessions.

    So i'm gathering thatis not recognising my Audio drive as a suitable drive for protools ....even know it's always worked.

    Any ideas?

    i'm not shure if that will help, but a friend of mine had a similar problem with osx, the OS recognised one of the two audio drives not as a hfs(+) formated drive after an OS update, un-mounting and re-mounting the HD cured his problem, maybee give it a try...
  3. Thanks for that...I tried it but in my case it didn't work.

    Worth a try :)

    oi, hang on here, maybee i am sleeping, it's protools right? as far as i read here on RO, PT under Tiger is still a "no go" that coul'd be it!
    there where two similar threads of PT problems under Tiger here somewhere...

    did you tried swapping back to 10.3.x, does the same problem occur??
  5. Thanks are correct. I looked on the digidesign site and they have just released 6.9.2 with Tiger support.

    Downloading now!!

    I'll post back soon with the outcome. Hopefuly this will fix the problem.

    Thanks for everyones help.

  6. Here is some usfull info: (doesn't work for me asi'm on PT LE- looks like i'm back to Panther for now)

    U could try this too..

    Hey there..
    I had a similar problem where i could not record enable the tracks. It said 'Cannot designate volumes'. I fixed it by changing the volume properties in the workspace to record from playback for audio n' video.. Maybe urs is set to 'transfer' only..
    Hope that helps..
