The only way for me to download the data is to open it first. So every time I try and import data I can't because the data is messed up. How do I keep this from happening?
Sorry you're stuck but there's almost always a pretty easy fix! Do NOT try to start all over again, eg. uninstall Max's Pitch Package, etc. That can make things worse.
