Some of my most important files say bad format when i try to open them, is there anyway i can get them back working?

Somone said i would need to take them into a specialist that deals with this kinda thing?

What files

04-04-2006, 12:12 PM
rsn files.

Propellarheads Reason.

I will forward a small some of cash if anyone can get these working again.

According to filext.com, rsn files are just winamp files

So in other words you are either asking about how to save pirated songs (big no-no in here) or you have the originals on CD (in which case there is no problem)

Go into tools / folder options / file types in my computer.

See if rsn shows here. If not add it and associate it with Reason.

They maybe config files for it, or something, why it says bad format.

Do/Does the file/s open if you load it/them from within Reason?

right i just tried opening them from inside reason.. and only certain files will work???

Well, I would either install Reason again, or email Propellorheads.

And ask them how to fix it.

Or the files that wont open arent reason files. It may not recognise them.

Are there any places for situations like these?

Either the user forums or email support will be the best bet
You'll need to register though so have your authorization card handy, you may need it

If the file was actually corrupt would the error message say it was "corrupt" or does bad format mean that it is corrupt?

does bad format mean that it is corrupt?
I would have thought so
Is it windows or the application that is giving you the error message?

The applications type of file that is giving me the error message

You know the file dosent work, does it matter what the error message says; "corrupt" or "bad format".

Delete or replace the file.

Yes i know the file doesnt work BUT im trying to get the file to work cos its a very important file. If the error message said it was courrpt then i know it would be game over but ive been on the phone to some companies and they said that its a 50/50 and bad format could mean that some of the file in question is missing.

Deleleting the file is the last option mate, which is why im doing all i can to salvage what i can

You could try opening in another player - VLC.

Rename to a .mid then see if you can import.
