[Solved] General Error

...as opposed to Corporal Cock-Up.
 
Trying to save an X3e project and keep getting this. Any clues?
 
I've tried saving and saving as a different name but no go. Plenty of room on the disk etc.
 
Cheers

Hit playback and the General Error message goes away. You can then save.

You're welcome, but I didn't come up with the answer...someone else had figured it out and posted the solution a while ago. You gotta love this forum

Indeed, one of the most helpful I know. Strange error, hopefully fixed soon as it keeps reoccurring.

Don't mention it lol! Seems Sonar is not aware if your power scheduling has put your system drive to sleep and just gives a 'general error ' , go figure. Now if I could just figure out this darn PCS-BussCM.dll crash....doh!

I have only received that error once and was resolved by increasing the input and output file buffers. I had to bump them up to 500 and have never received that error again.

probably should be a new thread, but...
mettelus - I've had the PCS-BusCM.dll causing a lot of crashes too, where are the settings for increasing the input and output file buffers?

Sorry for the late response. In the Preferences window, you need to be in "Advanced" mode (at the bottom). Audio->Sync and Caching has a Playback and Record I/O buffer near the bottom. These are the buffer sizes for reading/writing to a disk drive. I have these both set to 512 actually, and only bumped them up because of a General Error I got with a large project file. It was the only time I ever saw this error, and I never tried the solution that Craig mentioned above.

Did increasing these buffers help with your PCS-BussCM.dll crashes at all???  This has been the most persistent crash we have ever had to deal with so far...
