    Giga Crash. New Cause?

    I just had a BSOD that caused my computer to lock up for three restarts.

    I captured a cue in giga, imported to sonar 4 SE, exported as mp3. Then, with both programs still running, I wrote an e-mail and attempted to attach the mp3 version, which was renamed in the file dialog that comes up when you choose the file to attach. Double clicked on the file and down she went.

    Any ideas what might be going on here? I can close giga/sonar before sending, but this is kind of unsettling. Might it have soemthing to do with that old "Monitor File Activity" issue?

    I assume your email prgram isn't MS Outlook (Full)?

    That, along with just about anything else in the world can crash Giga.

    Gee thanks. That really narrows it down
    Outlook express IS on this machine, but I understand that recent updates have nullified its threat. Correct me if I'm wrong, and I'll get it the heck off of there.

    I spent about 4 hours last night (4hours that should've been spent composing) trying stuff before I realized that things got tangly just as soon as I captured and imported to sonar, which was running at 44/16. Giga, at the same time was capturing at 16, but playing samples at both 16 and 24. I converted the the 24 libs to 16, and the problem seems to be gone.
    This has screwed me up before. Gave me playback issues-not crashes. Last night these programs REALLY didn't like the bitrate mix. It's now at the top of my list of things to avoid.
    Back to work now. Thanks Brian.

    Outlook is the problem, not Outlook Express, AFAIK.
