    audacity "error while opening sound device ????"

    Audacity works fine for a while in 8.10 then I get this message:

    Error while opening sound device. Please check the output device settings and the project sample rate.

    Any suggestions?

    Same error, but without any spots where it is working. If I switch device to ALSA: HDA VIA blahblahblah... Analog, then playback is at half-speed, roughly. The same device digital option gives no sound at all.

    Same error here too. It's a pain, but exporting the file and playing elsewhere works. Not much of a solution if you use it frequently.
    And then, all of a sudden, nothing happened!

    There is more on this problem in the Audacity Forum.

    This worked great for me. Didn't have to follow all the instructions, I only had to delete the file! Started up Audacity and had audio playback. Really easy fix.
    And then, all of a sudden, nothing happened!
