You may have set filters on your loop browser, that prevent the loops from showing.
- The pop-up meu at the top oof the Loop Browser should be set to "Show All", and not to the name of a JamPack or "My Loops". Otherwise you will see only a subset of your loops.
- If the signature of your project is not 4/4 you may not see many loops.
- Disable "Filter for more relevant results" in the Preferences "Loops" pane.

Bullet 1 and 3 had already been done. However, # 2 seems to be what was happening. This explains why it was only some files.
Was this an "enhancement" or "improvement" in an upgrade or patch? I seem to remember being able to access all the loops in these files before. I now have a kludge to work around this.

since version 1, changing the time signature restricted loops displayed to that time signature:

Without allowing user control. Sounds like a downgrade to me.
Also gave me a seriously horribly frustration headache.
Thanks for the help. No thanks to the programmers who stole over two hours of my life.

Sorry, but I still don't understand. Is this about the loops showing up in the browser or about loops that you used in an old project? In the latter case - if the loop still exists on your computer, it should be in the song, no matter whether it's in the browser's list or not. So please look for the loop in the acutal Loops folder on your hard disk, under HD/Library/Audio/Apple Loops!

Just loops showing up in the loop browser. No loops were harmed in the making of this episode.
The kludge is that by changing the time signature, I can get at them, although I have yet to try changing time, adding loops then changing time back.
At some point I need to recognize that garageband is just a toy and not a full featured music production tool.
Thanks to all of you who responded. You have been helpful.
