It is up to version 1.3...even it might say beta, I am still to find any issues with it. Try that.
Sometimes that happens to me. I just delete it and reload it into Audacity and it works.
Also, did you copy and paste this to somewhere else first? Try using the original file, without moving it or anything.
Try opening with Audacity, instead of dragging it in and vice versa.
how do I do an update? I've looked for updates and couldn't find any. should I do a complete unistall, find the updated version somewhere and reinstall?
Yeap, here's the link:
okay, I have done that but I am still running into the same problem. I import the file with "nodrm" and get this high pitch squelch. I've tried importing the original file and it says it can't be read. when I go to file, open, and select the song it doesn't even let me import it.
Upload that problematic file to MediaFire so we can have a try at it, it should take you a few minutes...
Okay, where's the download link?
here is the download link.

, which was not true, that's where the problem comes from.
If the file was an mp3 un-protected, Audacity would have no problem importing it. Your file, however, is an WMA, Audacity cannot decode it with the default settings.
You need the proper codec, download ffmpeg and you'll be able to open virtually any audio file(or even tracks from video files);follow tis link and the instructions(follow the 1 and 2 steps!!!):
There's a free wma to mp3 converter here.
He might need to cut/edit it and save it as WAV or something,not as an mp3... whatever needs to be for a phone ringtone...
Once ffmpeg for Audacity is installed, the impor/export posibilities are huge.
Dope-slap for me.
Lol, not necessarily
My phone accepts full mp3 tacks as a ringtone. I just browse to whatever music file, "right click it"(properties) and select "use as ring tone, alarm, whatever...)
I can do that with my phone, too, but just want an editing program so I can chose where the ringer starts, you know? LIke the chorus or a cool solo, thanks, mate. Cheers
Yeah, I got you...I do the same thing with Audacity.
Did you get it to work?
I went to the link you sent, downloaded, unzipped, and then nothing happened. No install wizard. So. I open audacity to c if it worked and nothing. Grr. What to do, what to do.
Audacity is awesome.
If you have a movie that you want to extract a portion of the soundtrack, you just drag the video into Audacity. If the movie has multiple audio tracks, will let you choose which one you want to import.
There is no need to first demux the audio from the video.
Just download the exe and follow the setup instructions:
If you downloaded the ZIP file and extracted it, you need to go to set up(STEP 2 from instructions!!!) and tell Audacity where the extracted file is located. Instead of Import/Export, you need to go to "Libraries, a few lines lower(the picture on WiKi is for an older version of Audacity)
Here are the steps after you install the exe:
okay, I may have to just start all over. I downloaded the file. went through the set up wizard. now what?
