Garageband doesn't open .. I have tried many things

Advertisement

Since last week Garageband is giving me headeches. First gave me the Midi conflict error, then started to close when selecting the "new podcast episode". then I connect an M Audio card Fast track pro and started to record with some errors. Then I plugged I mic (Studio Project) and it recrded with an obnoxious feedback (one high pitched, the other like rock fallings). At that point I disabled the sound card but in the reinstall of the driver garage band rescaned the machine for the card. At that point the software didn't respond. I reinstalled (twice) the software from the Install disc, and GB started to load but stalled in the blue bar. I installed the upgrade, and the program bounces once in the dock and then freezes. I tried the system disk repair already... I don't know what to do. I'm feelin like wheel chair PC in the latest APple TV spot.

Ah, I missed your post about Blackfoot, I must have been typing/posting at the same time as you. Great band, and yes, long live Southern Rock.
Now, on to your question...
We've narrowed it down somewhat, but it's still guesswork.. A couple of things come to mind:
If you have any movies in your movies folder, try moving them to another folder somewhere else (not within the Movies folder). You might also try searching your Home directory for ".component". It's doubtful, they're usually installed at the root level, but if any turn up within your home directory you should try moving them to another folder.
After all this it never hurts to run a Repair Permissions again (it can solve some of the oddest problems.).
