SD2 files crash Workspace

Some SD2 files, apparently those with resource fork issues, crash ProTools when auditions are attempted via Workspace, kicking back a C++ Assertion error in "Cmn_Store.cpp".

This is on a Win 7 system utilizing MacDrive. This is like a horrible game of Minesweeper, where if you you fail with your luck, ProTools and the entire session goes down in flames. Please address this.

  1. This is more an OS issue. The same happens on OSX because SD2 files are prone to losing their resource-forks which makes them unreadable.

    I highly recommend converting all your SD2 files to BWAV to avoid this in the future.

    I doubt that PT can address this since the corruption happens before the files are even loaded into PT. Even under OSX this happens.

    That's actually what I am in the process of doing now, getting everything to BWAV. I wonder if there's a way that they can be ignored from playback though sine the Workspace scans the files (to load up waveforms and such).

  3. Pro Tools hasn't supported SD2 files since version 8. You should use Import Session Data to import and convert those sessions audio files to WAV format.
