I just finished my first project in Cubase 8 and wanted to hear it on my larger sound system. To digress, a while back, I recorded a similar project in Cubase AI5, set my project markers, exported my audio tracks at 44.1 and 16-bit. The resultant wave file played from a thumb drive plugged into my DVD player,which was connected to my sound system. Fine.
My finished Cubase 8 project is ready for export. I did the exact same procedure, and yet my DVD player says the file is “Unplayable or corrupt.” What gives? I included a screen shot of my Export dialog box just prior to clicking Export. I’m sure it’s pilot error and not the Cubase program. The only difference in the two wave files is the size. The one that plays is 20.5 KB and the Cubase 8 one that doesn’t play is 33.8 KB. The project from the Cubase 8 program also contains all the MIDI tracks, but they are muted. Many thanks.
Forgot to mention–the exported wave file plays on my PC but not on my DVD player (Sony, about 4 years old.)
