It seems like from one day to another Logic Pro 8 started to display a msg saying "This document could not be saved" and now I am unbale to save any work done period. Even after starting a new project the problem continues and i have no clue on what to do. Does anybody know how to fix this problem? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hardrive has 600GB left

Logic Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Hmm. Seems like it has become a recurrent problem, and I don't have an answer for that.


    When it happenned to me, though, I exported the project as an OMF file, thinking that at least I could have the audio saved in it's respective place on the timeline, and... hey presto. The save as became available again. I don't know why the save as became unlocked by exporting an OMF, but that's what happenned for me.


    In my case, although it has happenned on a couple of occasions, it has been only for the projects that were open at the time.


    Good luck.

    Here's a couple of things to try:


    Try using the "Save As" command and saving under a new name.


    Try using the "Save As" command and navigate to the location of the original file and saving using the same name.


    If you can get it saved at any location quit Logic and repair permissions.


    I've posted this elsewhere...


    Since you're still on Snow Leopard I would definitely run this fix.



    Follow the instructions exactly, no more, no less.


    The support article has a link to the Prokit you need to install. (after following the instructions).


    If this doesn't help it's possible you have a corrupted project.


    (Don't delete the "ProKit.framework" the support article mentions, just move it in case you need to move it back)

    The file path is /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ProKit.framework. Its there.

    If this happens, disable Core Audio Driver in Preferences , then apply and save your song. This works for me.
