Please enter a Valid Path????

Post by mgmazzei » Fri Sep 27, 2013 5:38 pm

O.K. all I want to do is change some tunes from a CD that are in Aiff format to a wav. file format. I choose Save as and I get a MAC dialogue box. Underneath is the Wavelab dialogue box. I cancel the MAC one and fill in the Wave lab box. Before this, I created 2 folders. One that has the AIFF files and another that will contain the wav files. I name the file, In the Where box I direct it to the folder that will contain the .wav files. Output format I select 16 bit wav.
I hit save and I receive ....PLEASE ENTER A VALID PATH.. There is an X where the name is. What am I doing wrong?? Do I need to fill in the MAC dialogue box first?/ Is there a special name I need to tag at the end of the song name. Is there a problem with 2 separate folders? Should I be in render mode? I don't want to change sample rates or values. I just want to change the format of songs from AIFF to wav....
Thanks

Mike

There is a space after "New Amen CD ", as Sonik pointed it out, this is forbidden.

A space character is the character between 2 words. That you types with the biggest button on your keyboard. There must be no such character as the start and end of a folder/file name.

"/Macintosh HD Back up/New Amen CD /Amen for..." should become:
