I am trying to send some bitcoin from my the ledger live program to my Wasabi wallet, Every time i copy the address from Wasabi to ledger live it says "this is not a valid bitcoin address"

I have double checked the address and generated new ones but i am still getting the same error

As far as I know, wallet addresses generated by wasabi are Bech32. Bech32 is a segwit address format specified by BIP 0173. You can confirm this if the address you are sending to starts with bc1...
So the most likely scenario is that your the ledger live program does not support sending bitcoins to segwit wallets yet.
More info here Bech32 adoption

The solution, try wallets that can generate green addresses and then after, send to wasabi.

Is the address starting with “bc1”? If so, Ledger Live doesn’t support those kind of addresses (it just don’t think it’s valid)

You can open your Ledger wallet through Electrum or see if you can generate a normal address (starting with a 1 or 3) on Wasabi.

Wasabi wallet generates bech32 adresses (starting with bc1), such addresses are not supported by ledger live app so it will return the "not a valid bitcoin address" error message.

Take a look at this link to find which wallets support bech32:

In your case you need to connect your Ledger to Electrum.

You don't need to sent to another wallet first.
You can use use Electrum instead of ledger live. The incompatibility lies on ledger live , not in your hardware wallet.

 Electrum is a much better software, however it requires more knowledge to use. It is 100% compatible with ledger nano s, x , blue etc.

Donwload Electrum from electrum.org, the only true website.
