This question is about exporting to .mid using the Export symbol.  Does
Mathematica really create a file out of thin air from data?  A simple
example, I get:

Export["cnote.mid", Sound[{SoundNote["C"], SoundNote["G"]}]]

OpenWrite::"noopen" : "Cannot open "/Users/mydrive/cnote.mid". \

It looks like it's *looking* for a file rather than looking to write one.
 Any suggestions?  Thanks!
