Unexpected abortion of experiment during trials
Hello Open Sesame community,
I designed a fear conditionin paradigm and have successfully tested it on several subjects so far.
But sometimes, and I cannot explain why, the experiment just aborts telling me an unexpected error occured and that a file (I have six picture files and three audio files uploaded in the experiment) is missing. This has happened three times so far, every time at a different moment, every time a different file was missing and every time that exact file had already been shown or presented (so why would it be missing suddenly??).
I thought that this problem could have been due to some problems during the copying progress (I had designed the experiment on a different computer than the one I'm using for testing) and that I resolved the problem by deleting all the files and uploading them again on the testing computer. But it just happened again :(
Can you explain what is happening? And how I can prevent this from happening ever again?
I don't know if I can use the data of the subjects once I restarted the experiment at the point where it stopped. And I have a fellow co-worker who is helping me with the testing who is not familiar with Open Sesame and who could not just delete all the files and re-upload them again naming them correctly etc. (that's what I did before I re-started the experiment again) should this happen while she is testing.
I hope that this issue can be resolved and someone knows an answer.
