Therefore the problem is not Windows issue otherwise the file would be greyed out or not visible for selection. Are you able to get information of the file displayed when in ASP mode or does this look faded like protected files? Just curious is there an issue with the 64bit version?
I'm not sure I completely understand your question, but I'll do my best to answer. First, let me say that all these audio files work perfectly outside of ASD (I have Debut, not Pro). I can play them in Windows Media Player and Quicktime with no problems.
When I try to import them into an animation, I use File ... Import ... Audio File ... . The normal Windows Open File dialog appears, and the audio files are shown as normal, not grayed out. I can actually listen to the audio files within the dialog -- they work fine there. Then I select an audio file, MP3 or WAV, and click Open. That's when I get the message: The selected audio file is not supported.
I have also tried adding an audio layer with the same result. Interestingly, I can add sounds from the Content Library. I can also record and play back sounds with the built in audio recorder, but I can't save them or add them to my animation. Weird, huh?
There might be a 32-bit / 64-bit problem. I am using Win 7 64-bit but my ASD is 32-bit. I have written to the Smith-Micro tech support guy to ask about that. But surely I'm not the only one using this setup.
