I have just started an AE position, I've transcoded a few days of footage, and am syncing with audio into subclips using Avid Symphony 6.
At some point during my syncing, the bins refused to save anymore... I get this error message:
"Exception: Invalid Argument filename:xxxxxx.wrt"
where xxxxxx is the name of the new bins I am trying to save. This is especially worrying because I can't close Avid without a forcing a quit, and I am having another issue with not being able to eject another backup drive... So I want to restart the system but am very hesitant to force close Avid!
I'm on a macbook pro 2.8 GHz, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512 MB
I did try to create new bins and I got a similar message, it wouldn't create the bins and gave an invalid argument message.
Since then I got a "segmentation fault" error message and Symphony just crashed and quit on it's own.
I shut down and gave the drives and system a rest, then started up again; I lost several of the syncs but things seem to be working again for now and I can save the bins... I have a feeling it was something with the drives but really can't say. I'm just hoping it won't happen again, so if anyone has any thoughts for prevention I'm all ears...
