Caustic won't save

Hello. I'm using caustic on a kindle Fire HD, but it currently won't save, it has done before, and I really dontvwant to lose what I'm working on, any ideas? The whole save process seems to go through ok, but it's not there when you go to load it back up

Thanks

I don't know any exact answer

I don't know any exact answer, but trying to think of possible things. If it has saved ok before, then there must be something different this time, I would think about what might be different. Is your internal storage ok, have you ran out of space, is it saving to somewhere else. For example, if you are working within Caustic, and you create a new folder within the Songs folder, and save it to there,, and subsequently try opening and editing form that location it will not save...anyway just a few things to think about, if you post the caustic file here, if I get a chance i will try to see if i can save it, or someone else might?

Thanks Wellsley, 

Thanks Wellsley, 

I've still go a couple of gig free space, and other apps can save ok, searched for the filename and it doesn't appear to be anywhere else. I dont have an option to save in a different location, it looks like the amazon app store is still on 3.1 if that helps. I mmight be missing something, but how can I post the caustic file if it wont save?

I did find the quicksave file, which seems to be backup of your current project which is good, unfortunately its from an earlier version of the song with quite a bit missing. If I can get the quicksave to update that should work.

Any idea on how you would gt the quicksave file to update?

 

THanks

Hmm, it's a tricky 1...not sure how to get the quicksave to update. As far as i know 3.1 should still be ok, shouldn't have anything to do with it. What about the question of anything that is different to this file than the ones that have saved ok? Also, what exactly happens when you try to save, so you are in caustic with the track open, and then you hit save in the Song options tab, what happens then, does the "save song as " edit screen appear?

The only difference with this

The only difference with this is I've got quite  a few samples loaded in. I might try removing them and saving, see if I can load them back in afterwards Yeah, I hit save Song then the normal edit screen pops back up straight away.

Ended up restarting the tablet. The song loaded back from the quicksave, some bits missing but better than nothing. Saves fine now :) Thanks for the help Wellsley
