    Hi.

    I've used garageband to make my podcasts for about a year now, with no problems.

    Sometime in March, though, there were two changes to my setup and I started noticing big problems.

    The first change was the upgrade to 6.0.5 of garageband, which happened in early march. The second was that my harddrive was full, so i started saving my garageband files to an external hard drive.

    The issue I'm experiencing is that when I load up a saved GB files (from the External HD), it will give weird errors, like, "The File Type Is Not Supported," and "One Or Multiple Audio Files Changed In Length," and "Garageband found 1 audio file in 8-bit format - the file is unsupported and cannot be played back."

    When the errors stop, large segments of my podcast are missing, or the segments will be blank with no audio.

    I've lost hours of content with this.

    Can anyone suggest a solution?

    Thanks.

    Hi here is a new video about this for Garageband 10, showing a simple manual fix and placed it on my blog.
