Any advice welcome
Thank you all
Copying a GarageBand file between computers on a LAN shouldn't be a problem. There is nothing special about a GarageBand file that makes it dfferent from any other file. A few things to consider.
- A GarageBand file (.band) is a special Finder file, a "Package" file which is actually a folder. You could (but shouldn't) open it fromt the files Shortcut Menu "Show Package Contents"
- If you used the Terminal command chmod 777, you might have changed only the permisseon of the file (the folder) and not its content. Maybe there are files inside that have permission conflicts with the target machine you want to copy to. I think you have to use the option -r with the chmod command to apply the permission to all the folders content.
- Using the zip file is a general (very handy) procedure to be used not specifically for GarageBand. It "freezes" the folder content and prevents any alteration due to copy procedures.
Hope that helps
