BUG: Unable to Import MP3 Files in Flash CS6

May 16, 2012 3:03 PM

Tags: #flash #bug #import #mp3 #cs6

I am unable to import mp3 files of any kind in Flash CS6. Tried import to stage, import to library, Drag and Drop... no dice. Receiving a generic error message. Tried closing out and restarting,etc. - still not working.

 

Anyone else having this issue?

    Please follow this process before importing the MP3 files.

     

    Launch the app, Press "CTRL +SHIFT+ALT" immediately

    Menu will popup  "Delete Adobe profressional settings? "

    Select Yes.

    Then try to import the MP3 files.

     

    Please let me know if its works.

    I am not sure its an issue of  the codec used in MP3. Could you please share the MP3. I will try and reply back to you.

    I can't import them to the stage, nor drag and drop, anymore.  But they will import to library.  But I can't get them to preview.  Sound only when I publish.

    I'm in the same boat. I cannot import mp3's. I did as mentioned above and still no luck.

    This is true for ALL my files. The mp3's were also created with Soundbooth so there isn't any weird codecs either.

    Windows 7 64 bit

    For Flash CS6 on Win7, you need to update to QuickTime(7.7.1) and iTune(10.5.3.3) to import .mp3 files of which bitrate is larger than 192kbps..

    Yep that worked!

    The "update" in the library would not update the content but the drag and drop worked fine.

    Note: The path in the update dialog shows a relative path and after the drag and drop it shows an absolute path to the file

    I also had an issue with the audio being changed from stream to event.

    Do you need both QuickTime and iTune in order to import .mp3 files, or will the updated version of QuickTime be sufficient?

    when i try to import .MP3 file, its displaying an error "couldn't import the specified file.mp3"

    when i try to add .wma files, its showing an error "one or more files were not imported because there is a problem while reading them".

    Hi my friend...

     

    1. Import the sound to library

    2. Select the layer you want to import

    3. Open properties dialog (ctrl + f3 or windows -> properties)

    4. with a frame selected in layer - see the sound dialog box showing in properties

    5. click the drag down and select the sound you have imported

    it's ok now

     

    6. you must select the sync as 'stream' for the sound to stop at the end of movie

     

    thanks

    Mahesh

    I somehow managed to import my file, but still, did not work by Draging it in. Only after update of Quicktime and iTunes, I imported my 30mb file after comverting from .mp3 -> to .wav and it worked. Thanks.

    I couldn't import any WAV or MP3 files into Flash Professional CS6.

    I had this issue when saving out of SoundBooth CS4.  There was a box in the Preferences>MetaData> "Include source XMP on save as"  this prevented Flash from opening the file... When I turned off the check box, MP3 and WAV files suddely worked.

     

    Hope this helps someone else.

    I have the same Problem on my Mac OSX 10.7.5. I have the latest Quicktime Version and iTunes is also the newest Version. What do I have to do in order to import or even update mp3 files to my Flash CC project??

    The only way I could get my music to import was to import it into Flash CC. For some reason it wouldn't import into Flash Cs6 though and my whole project is in Flash CS6. Is there any way to fix this or is there a specific reason why it will only import in Flash CC?
