I have recorded multiple sound files using both WavePad and SoundTap that are more than a few minutes long. When I try to load a file into WavePad for editing, it only loads the first 21.539 seconds of the file and nothing else.
I have performed a full disc cleanup (Windows 10); uninstalled and reinstalled the software (multiple times); and even tried recording small test files (longer than 30 seconds)-saving them-and immediately opening them in WavePad for editing.....and still only the first 21.539 seconds of the file appear in the editing window. If I play the file, the sound stops at the 21.539 mark.
I AM able to play the FULL sound file from within SoundTap, Windows Media Player, etc.
I was having this same problem with older Windows 7.0 versions of the software and thought it was an upgrade issue, so I bought all new Windows 10 versions of the various NCH programs I use. The problem persists.
What do I need to do to fix this problem so I can record/input/edit sound files and be able to edit the full file, not just the first 21+ seconds??
PLEASE HELP! I'm trying everything I know how to do from this end. Nothing is working. 😡
