can't import any audio files into live 9

Hello everybody !

I can't drag'n'drop audio files anymore into live 9 (tried .mp3 and .wav)... I am in big big troubles because I have to prepare files for a recording session soon.

I'm using a 64bits version and just go upgrated from windows 7 64 bits to windows 10 64bits (upgrade that keeps all parameters, programs installed, etc.)

Any ideas that could help me ?

    It's no doubt due to permissions (Ableton is in Administrator mode and you're logged in as a normal user, or vice versa). The easiest way around this is to add whatever-folder-you're-using-to-keep-you-recordings-in to your 'Places' collection: On the far left of the screen go down to 'Add Folder' and then select the folder that all your recorded files are located. Then all the files (wavs, mp3s) should then be displayed in the browser content pane for you to add to the project.

    You really are the king... Thank you very much, it works perfectly now :))

    I had to change all my config to my macbook because of this... Now I'm back to work on my initial config thanks to you.
