I mentioned this in my last post but it was never addressed and I'm in a better place to go into more detail.

I had been able to use Nanostudio just fine for years but had to stop unfortunately because now every time I try to save any project it gives me an error saying "Failed to save song file".

Every time I do this the folder just gets a broken "Untitled-(number)" file.

I thought It was just a bug with the current version I had so I found an older one online (v1.42 -> v1.41) but the same thing happened. I tried reinstalling several times on different hard drives but still same. I can't for the life of me figure this out and this is the only free music program I fully comfortable with. :S

Check the usage on your iPhone/iPad. It sounds like you just ran out of space. Time to delete some of those cat videos. ;-)

I would if it were on an idevice. I'm using the windows version and have more than enough storage

I’m guessing that the problem could be related to the fact that while NS v1.42 hasn’t changed in a long time, Windows gets updates on a regular basis. Try reverting back to an earlier version of Windows. I don’t have the expertice to tell you how to do that, but a Google search should help. I’ll be curious to know if you find a solution to this situation, so keep us posted.

Fantastic! Many of us have the PC version of NS as a failsafe, so it’s good to know that this worled with the Vista ‘version’. Thanks for the follow up
