[Ardour-Users] Problems importing audio

Hi all... I'm working on a fairly large project at the moment (the  
duration of the file is about 23 minutes, and the interchange  
directory is up to 3.04 GB). I'm trying to import audio into an  
existing track, and am getting the following error:

[ERROR]: SndFileSource: cannot open file "/Users/joshp/ArdourComp/ 
for read+write (System error.)
[ERROR]: Session::import_audiofile: cannot open new file source for  
channel 2

I'm using a Ardour 2.1 (X11) on a MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz with OS X  
10.4.10. Due to the system error, I have tried a restart of the  
program (where I may be able to import one new file, then get the  
above error when I try to import the next one), I have restarted the  
computer and have checked disk permissions, and have finally hit a  
wall where nothing else can be imported. Have I hit a limit of some  

All the files I am importing are 32-bit floating point WAVES. If  
anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.

interpretation of how modern society is structured: whether actively  
or passively, consciously or unconsciously, he makes choices in this  
regard. He may be conservative or he may subject himself to continual  
renewal; or he may strive for a revolutionary, historical or social  
palingenesis." - Luigi Nono
