Problem Loading Console Show File into ETC Edit Software Program


Having problems loading show disk into ETC Edit.


The program wants to move incoming information to C:\etcedit\samples. A number of technicians and end users put the ETC Edit program file into the ETC Programs (C:\ETC Programs)subdirectory which can cause this error.

  1. Make sure that the show was recorded on a DD (Double Sided, Double Density: 720kb) disk.
  2. If you get the following error message: "Unable to create temporary scratch file. Possible Cause: Default Show Directory is set to a non-existent subdirectory.", make sure that the ETC Edit program file is in the C:\ directory.
