Thanks for you note, Andres. It does happen with all csd files. I'm running CsoundQT from the applications folder, and I've tried running Csound from both the mounted disc and the applications folder. I have full read & write access in both places. Maybe a trip to the Genius Bar is in order...

Thanks again,

Hi John,

What a strange error. It seems you might be trying to read or write something that you don't have permission too. Maybe you are trying to run CsoundQt without having copied it to the Applications folder?

Does that happen with all csd files?

Any idea how to overcome this? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
