Anyone have any ideas?
go to your flash folder and right click Flash.exe
If you have 64 bit the path will be
C:\Program Files(x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS4\Flash.exe
If 32 bit it will be
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS4\Flash.exe
Right click Flash.exe and go to properties. Click on the compatability tab. Check off "Run in compatability mode" and select windows XP as the operating system. After doing that, open up flash and try importing sound. Give that a try and post your results.
I'm using CS3, but I still tried your suggestion. It didn't work and I'm still getting the same error message. This makes no sense to me, and I'm not sure who I should ask for help, Adobe, Dell, or Microsoft. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Still can't import audio, any suggestions?
Move your audio files to a different drive. Simple as.
I had the same issue you have on my sister's computer and doing this worked a treat. ^_^.
This post is a bit old, but maybe can help other that came here from google. According to adobe's site:
"Flash does not internally support MP3 files with a bitrate over 160kbps. Importing sound files over this size will cause Macromedia Flash to ask Quicktime to handle the import via Quicktime’s audio subsystem."
So, try to install quicktime and see if it works.
