  1. One thing I haven't tried is reformatting the hard drive. That may e what it needs as it's never been done. Makes me wonder especially if you think it's an issue with my hard drive.
  2. Thanks for your feedback. I will try the suggestions and see what happens. I'd like to just get it working properly if possible. I really have no need for all the new technology at the moment. I have tried the newest version of Cakewalk on my ASUS laptop and it runs fine, at least recording one track at a time. Would need to buy a new usb interface though to record the whole band. I do have access to another brand new laptop but the speed is only 1.2 ghz. Would the new usb interfaces work with Cakewalk on a computer that slow if I was trying to record 6 tracks at once?
  3. I'm about ready to buy computer and start over. Why? In a nut shell many years ago I bought an old Dell Computer with Windows XP pro. Upgraded ram, installed new hard-drive to handle all the wave files, etc. Computer isn't connected to internet. Stripped down so it's a dedicated computer running nothing but Cakewalk. Recently started recording my jazz trio in my basement. 6 mics going in plus one midi instrument. It's using one soft Smyth - the piano that comes built-in with cakewalk. Not using any effects at all for recording. I have to keep restarting my computer after every take. Otherwise the file quickly becomes corrupt and ruins the take we just did. Starts making a horrible noise. Anyone have any solutions or do I need a new computer? Btw I've never updated any drivers. Felt this might make things worse. Currently using XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 build 2600 Processor: x86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9 GenuineIntel 2394 Mhz This is a Pentium 4 CPU 2.40Ghz, 2.39 gHz, 3.62 GB of RAM Sonar Home Studio 9 Thanks
