  • Hello Marc,

    Thanks for posting. I'd like to help. There are multiple causes of this symptom. The most common cause is that the file is indeed an invalid or corrupt format. Other causes include the invisible files created by macintosh computers

    Using a free audio converter (http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/...) you can load your file and then re-encode it as a 16-bit, 44.1KHz Mono WAV file. This file loaded and triggered perfectly.

    Also, the Mac OS operating system creates invisible files on any card, drive, or volume. One invisible file is created for each visible one. The invisible files will have the same name as the original, but will begin with "._". For example...



    These invisible files will be visible when read from the Sample Pad, and the Sample Pad will display Invalid Format when the SamplePad attempts to load them.

    Your solution this problem is to ignore the invisible files, and skip over them when looking for samples to load from the card. You can use a Windows PC to load the files. The invisible files will not be created on a PC. You can yse a Windows PC to delete the invisible files created by the Mac. Lastly, you can yse a free utility such as CleanDisk for Mac to remove the invisible files on the card from your Mac.
