Wave samples will no longer play

Hello there, I have recently had my files restored on my external Hd, almost all of the files were audio samples.
they won't play through media player and I have tried putting them through Soundforge, Acid and switch plus.
Will it be possible to save any of the samples, as there are over 2Gb's.

Any suggestions appreciated

Try using audacity, it's free and can handle big files (as long as you have the RAM).

Hello, My Pa800 is few years old now has always worked perfectly. I recently combined few sets of rhythms together and loaded it there seemed to be no problem, few days later i was getting glitches in all...


The splicing of rhythms to play seamlessly would be tricky. Also you need to consider if you might be exceeding the number of generators available. If you are splicing external samples, that take great care and a lot of editing. Part of the problem is syncronizing the clocks of individual samples. It is hard to avoid glitches and changing mode of clock and quantizing will expose these glitches.

Solutions to watch Blu-ray movies on Mac and WD TV


Not an easy thing for Mac users to play back Blu-ray movies, even they are your personal purchasing. I’ve summarized three ways that Mac users have usually used to playback Blu-ray movies as following. Frankly speaking, the former two solutions seems a little troublesome, personally, I prefer the last one.
Solution 1: With the help of AnyDVD HD via Windows:
Requirements:
- A Windows PC with a built-in Blu-ray drive or an external BD drive.
- AnyDVD HD
- A Mac: MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, or Mac Pro
- Latest VLC media player or MPlayer
How-To:
1. Insert your Blu-ray disc to the BD drive, and run AnyDVD HD to remove copyright protections of your disc, no matter what kinds of protections your BD discs adopted, BD+, or AACS, AnyDVD HD is capable of dealing with them. Then you will get unprotected.m2ts files after the access of AnyDVD HD.
2. Copy the .m2ts files to an external drive or a USB stick, whatever, just let the Mac be able to read them.  
3. Use the latest VLC media player or MPlayer to play unprotected .m2ts files.
Solution 2: Running Windows on Mac via Boot Camp
What you will need:
- A BD drive
- A Mac
- Blu-ray playback software on Windows, like Cyberlink PowerDVD 9 Ultra
How-To:
1. Install Boot Camp and Windows
I do not mention too much about this process, because Apple has already given the full direction about it here.
2. Connect BD drive with your computer, and Playback Blu-ray via PowerDVD 9 Ultra on the newly installed Windows OS.
Solution 3: Rip BD with Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac
What you will need:
- A BD drive
- Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac
This ripper provides directly copy function as well as HD video output option, so there is no need to worry about the output file quality of your Blu-ray movie.
The above two methods are all depending on the assistant of Windows, while the third one is not, thus I’d like to show the detailed operating steps about this one in detail.

Easy-to-use steps:
1. Load BD files through "DVD Folder" or "IFO File".
2. Select audio track from the pull down menu of "Audio", both Dolby TrueHD audio and DTS-HD Master Audio are supported.
3. Click the drop-down list of "Format" to select output format. Directly copy, HD video, iPhone, iPod, PS3, and many other devices and formats are all supported.
4. Click "Settings" button to adjust audio and video parameters like codec name, bit rate, aspect ration, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channels(5.1 channels is included).
5. Click "Browse" button to specify save path.
6. Click "Convert" button to start conversion.
Once the conversion is done, you are able to find out the output files via clicking "Open" button. If you choose directly copy, you can use VLC or MPlayer to play the output .m2ts files, if you converted to other usual formats, like mov, mp4, then you can use QuickTime player or whatever to play back them. 
Via the Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac mentioned in solution 3, you can also absolutely realize playback BD movies on your HDTV with WD TV. Both WD TV Live HD Media Player and WD TV HD Media Player are all workable with .m2ts files, and they also support Full HD resolutions up to 1080P in common. In order to reserve the HD audio and video quality of your BD movie, you can completely select "Copy"> "Directly Copy" to just get the .m2ts files as the original as long as your USB device has enough space to store the output files. If not, you can also consider converting BD to a HD video format to save space as well as keep HD quality of the source file.

Well, hope the above contents are helpful.

I would like to hook up an HD tuner to my Bose Wave Radio through the RCA input jacks . . . . I've done this with an iPod and it worked . . . . will the tuner play through the Wave Radio?


Of course it will if it has audio outputs. For all the Bose knows it's just a standard external audio device. What keeps you from just trying it?

Some of the games yes, but not many. I would recommend doing a full backup of your system to the external Hard Drive. all programs->accessories-> system tools-> backup & restore. You can backup the system from here and when you install the new system you can restore it.

How can the MPC 500 play the Samples on the Pads in real time?


You have to go to the sample edit page and move the start point to the beginning of the wave sample. Right now your start point is before the sample actually starts.

No internal wave signal


sample rate is wrong. You most likely have a bad codec installed or the wrong drivers for the audio card. install direct x if your on windows and install the manufactures site

I have an Archos 605, and have also purchased the console to connect it to my tv. This console has a USB connection, and the instructions say that I can connect my external HDD to it, and view this using...


Here's what you do.
Make sure that you can play one of the sample videos to your TV. Next, stop and go to the home screen.
Next, if your external HD has a powersource, plug that into the wall and the device so that it has power. Next plug the usb cable into the side of the DVR Station. The device screen (or the tv if you are still on tv out) should say, external device connecting. It will show the double browser screen and then just go to the file desired and click on OK. If the device doesnt recgnize and mount the external hd, could be because there is not enough power to the ext. HD or the HD is formatted in somehting other than fat32.
