Hi there, very new to BIAB ( 2017 version ) and I need a basic help about how to save songs.
When I use the " save as " button, I choosa a song name then when I look into the folder I saved it m I only find a NO NAME file .
So I have to rename it manually,and this happen either I use the .SGU after the name when I save
Another thing I don't understand, when I open the NONAME file it open with the chords change but BIAB didn't save any style or reale track change I've made .
Basically : HOW DO I SAVE MY SONGS ?

Welcome to the forums.

I don't know if this helps, but before you save your song, try setting the song name by clicking on the Song Name window (image 1, below), then selecting Save from the File drop-down menu, and making sure it is saved with the file name you have chosen.

Also, make a not of the exact folder that you have saved the song to. That is where you will need to load it from in future.

Hello and thank you for your reply.
That's exactly the way I do it .
I plce the name of the songs in the proper dialog box song name , then I save it with the drop File menu using Save as , I set up a directory on my documents folder where I want to save all my songs ....but whne I try to open it I only find an BIAB icon saying NO NAME FILE .

This is driving me crazy cause it should be the easier thing on the planet ( save a projet ) and I do that all the time with all my music programs...I mean , I'm a Mac user since 2008 :-) and I know exactly how to save a project with every program.....but this Band in a box is driving me nut !!

There must be a bug or maybe a setting ( but I checked everywhere ) and I can't find it !

Are you saying that the file is there and called no name? Or does BiaB not find any saved files?

If it is the later then BiaB is looking into the wrong folder. On a PC one would press the F3 key then you would search for the proper folder. If you don't change that folder then every time you press the F3 key it will take you to that folder. Hopefully the same will happen with a Mac.

I hope this helps and good luck.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
