    Question Converting to GS3 format crashing everytime!

    I tried to do some conversion of my massive GS2.5 files, but everytime I try, I get some sort of irregular file error, which, of course, is obscurred by the converting screen- and it just sits there. I left it for 3 days, with no luck. Also tried single programs, different ones, etc.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    In the app or the editor? If you are getting this problem in the app, you might try opening them in the editor and doing a "save as." Once you're successful you can delete the original.

    I had this problem on some corrupted GS2.5 files. I re-loaded them from the original library CDs, and they converted fine. GS3 and GS2.5 seemed to tolerate the corrputed files, but GS3 wouldn't convert them, until I replaced them with clean copies.

    You might also make sure that the Instrument Editor's Temp directory is pointing to a drive with plenty of empty space. It defaults to the GS installation drive.

    Open the Instrument Editor, and check under Edit/Preferences.
