Today I had an annoying problem in cubase 6.5.3 when I was trying to real time export a song of mine. I kept having this disk overload error and went investigate.
I discovered that this error had to do by the fact that I ended up with some missing files because I changed the project from 44k1 to 48khz. I thought I converted all the files but as cubased asked if I wanted to keep the samples on the same place I said no. Big mistake because everything was shifted around. At that moment I just quit cubase , restarted the project but then some of the files got missing.
Own fault because I didn’t save. ANyway I needed to revise the project anyway. And the missing files wern’t so importat. THey were some sound effects that I could re add easily, and voice samples that I processed with melodyne in a previous session.
Anyway so here we were, being with a bunch of missing files. SOme voices were present, the others were somehow missing. If I removed the parts containing the missing files, and I exported that part of the song, the bug (disk overload error) wouldn’t occur. When I replaced the part that was supposed to contain a wav but was missing, the project would throw that same error on the same place.
So there must be something wrong what happens when you change the sample rate of a project and some files get moved around or some get missing by making user mistake like i did.
i still can’t be 100% sure why this happened but I know how I solved it. I hope that’s some information someone could use.
