Macbook: v 1.8 not saving changes+USB dropouts

Scratch Live
Ortofon | Serato S-120
Ceasar K 7:19 AM - 26 April, 2008

I just decided to switch my serato to mac and bought a mac book and installed 1.8 on it..

MAC OS X Version 10.4.10
Processor: 2 Ghz intel core duo
1 GB ram

Whatever i do (import, crates etc) disappears when i restart the program...

Also, im getting the USB sign every now and then when i connect the hardware--i never got that on my pc..

Please help,

I tried downgrading to previous versions of SERATO but still soon as i exit the software all crates dissapear!

hi ceasar k,

can you check that your music/scratchlive folder is read/write? select it in finder then press apple+i to bring up the info panel on it.

yea it is read/write..i just checked..what can the problem possibly be then??

try re-naming the scratchlive folder with ssl closed and restarting.

My bad..i think it was because my music was located on the windows worked now! Thanks..

Regarding the USB sign that keeps popping up every now and then..any settings i should make on my mac other than turning off the airport?
