    file corruption prevention by adding an error-handler for the situation "drive vanished"

    Level 1
      Hi Guys,

      crossposting is not possible it seems, so here is a copy of my recent follow
      up to a question in adobe.audition.windows ...

      Sound card driver may be at fault, first time I experienced it it was
      solved by upgrading the awe32 driver, way long time ago, I think it was with
      CoolEdit96 it happened.

      My recent experience is however that this type of corruption usually happens
      when the drive the file is opened from disappears. What I did was to sample
      rate convert a file I had opened from a network location and then turn the
      resource off because I now would be using the version in the temp folder. No
      go, exactly the described file corruption, obviously becauase of an overflow
      caused by the division by zero error of a network location disappearing.

      Move or copy the file to the computer you intend open it on and open it from
      the local disk. I hope they read this as a handler for the situation "drive
      vanished" could be useful, I crosspost - if possible - to adobe.audition3.fr
      (feature request) if possible from the nntp interface.

      Kind regards
