Is your music from iTunes?
iTunes has copy protection built into much of its music that will prevent you from using it in video projects. Attempting to will throw up a generic error.
Yes, it is from an iTunes library. However it was able to be imported from iTunes and used earlier,
same file/same format/same storage location. I don't understand how the same music file could
be added previously, and is still referenced in existing projects, now cannot be added or the link
re-established. Is this an upgrade/change to iTunes?
I have no idea why it worked before. It's possible that some songs have a more strict copy protection than others.
All I know is that iTunes music is notorious for this.
Music from Amazon or other sources should not be a problem -- although, as I say in my books, you'll get the best performance if your music is in the WAV format rather than MP3.
I have Adobe elements 14 on windows 10. I have been receiving the error message, "The importer reported a generic error," when trying to insert music in my video. I have tried several different songs from iTunes and from other programs with no luck. Including some songs that I have already tried with success in the past on adobe elements 14. How do I fix this?
Have you tried converting your music files to WAV files using the free download Audacity?
