I've tried removing the FLV component files from my latest version Quicktime library, to no avail. Same thing was happening using the previous version of Quicktime. Why is it that nowhere at Apple's website, or anywhere else, can one find a description of this error??

Thanks for the quick response, however, as noted, I tried the suggested fixes (except for downgrading, which as I explain seems redundant since my previous version did the same thing...)

Any other ideas? What the heck is the error message anyway??

Try opening Console.app (found in \applications\utilties and look at the crashreporter logs for Quicktime to see if they suggest what process might be causing the problem.

Is there any possibility that the iPod drive is full?

By the way are you using Quicktime on a Mac or a PC?

attached below is what I find in Console repeatedly:

QuickTime Player(4168,0xa000ed88) malloc: ***  Deallocation of a pointer not malloced: 0xa1b1c1d3; This could be a double free(), or free() called with the middle of an allocated block; Try setting environment variable MallocHelp to see tools to help debug

(on a Mac...powerbook G4 running 10.4.11)

cheers...

This thread had some suggestions for that error, but the user ultimately had to do an archive and install of his sytem to cure the problem:  http://forums.macosxhints.com/showthread.php?t=76088

There was, however, a suggestion to try temporarily uninstalling any codec in \library\Quicktime first.

Have you tried opening Disk Utility and repairing permissions? Also run verify disk while you are at it.

After removing the .FLV component from the Quicktime Library folder the error message still appears. BUT if you log off and back on the files do appear. I don't ask why. I'm just happy they are there.

Thanks all....read the attached articles...am going to bed, but will try a few of these solutions manana....perhaps removing all components from both system and user Quicktime libraries, then logging off then on, might work.....I'll let you know. I don't really want to archive and install unless I have to. (what exactly does it do, anyway?)

cheers, back later...J

Yuck....all that just to export from QT?...I don't think so. Feels like going back to a PC, only easier. (I hear that voice in an Indian accent: "I"m sorry, you must reinstall Windows".

I'll try the other things, and if they don't work. I'll find another way to export video files to ipod or whatever...back later...J
