Cubase not importing wav files


I can’t import wav files in Cubase anymore. When I drag the track I get that “Not allowed” sign.

It was working fine until yesterday.
On another note today there are issues with the licence and there’s no way to reactive it, so the only way for me to open Cubase is to run as admin, but I’m not sure if this is related to the wav issue.

Can anyone help, please?



Do you drop it to an empty space of Project window or over the space of the Audio track? What kind of WAV file is it (sample rate, bit depth, count of channels)?

Maybe a screenshot/video might help.

I recently migrated from my old mac to MacMini with M2 chip. I can no longer import .wav files. I import by going to file, import, etc. The message I get is “Cannot convert this type of file!”.
