hi,

 

Our users are having problems dragging long loops >1 min into their project. They receive the following error:

 

 

result coode=5000

file=garageband-temp-c3fc7490.tmp

 

The system are OSX 10.6.8 and garageband 6.0.5(428.5)

 

The user accounts are network AD accounts.

 

This problem does not exist on a local user account.

Mac mini (Mid 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    result code=5000  is an error message, that access privileges are missing. The users are either not permitted to access the loops or to write the loops into their GarageBand project in their Home folders.

    The Network volumes need to be writeable by GarageBand.

    Mr. Do,

    Anyway, on my test iMac I have found that if I change the permissions on the folder /Library/Audio from everyone (read) to everyone(write) the problem is resolved!

    that is a very surprising solution.

    I think, I misunderstood what your users wanted to do:

     

    Our users are having problems dragging long loops >1 min into their project.

     

    I thought, this meant that they were trying to add audio files to their project  by dragging them to the time line and looping them. Your solution indicates that they are dragging not to the time line, but onto the loop browser to install the audio files as loops. Is that really necessary? Do they need to install such long audio files as loops in the library? Do they need that same file in many projects? If they only need it in one project, it might be preferable to drag the audio clip to the timeline and not to install it in the loop library.

     

    But anyway, even if they really need to install loops in the loop library, GarageBand should be adding user Loops to their private ~/Library/Audio folder in the Home folder, not to the System Library: /Library/Audio

     

    I find it very disconcerting, that you have to give read/write access to a central installation library to students, however trustworthy they might be

     

    Regards

    Léonie
