  • could my ssd be too fast?

    I have a silghtly annoying issue with my carpc.

    quick run down of what i'm running : 1x 32gb vertex ssd, 1x 500gb WD platter drive.
    2.2ghz amd process (single core sempron) some gigabyte mother board, cant remember the name. 2gb of ram.

    issue : upon resume from hibernation (win7 ultimate) and the music begins to resume from winamp, it begins to freeze for 1-2 secs every couple of random secs. then after 1-2mins the song continues to play without any hiccups.

    I have 180gb of music loaded into a playlist in winamp.
    at the time of resume, the only app running is winamp.
    if i set the machine to shutdown instead of sleep/hibernate upon leaving the car, there isnt any issue.

    i turned off cpu processor throttling ... so the pc should be running @ full power at all times.

    Can any suggest anything??

    don't hibernate?

    I don't know, something about freezing things (processes) instantly and then thawing them out instantly a while later seems like a bad idea. I stopped hibernating/suspending my system because of the weirdnesses that comes with hibernate/suspend. There isn't a noticeable boot time difference between cold and resume anyway on my system with the vertex SSD.

    I doubt it has anything to do with your ssd and has everything to do with hibernate/resume voodoo.

        is the hib file on the ssd or the wd drive? Audio stutter is caused by a buffer underrun. If it was anything else (like driver related) it wouldn't keep occurring.

        Also, do you have anything that runs on hibernation resume?

          It could be the SSD, or could be an anti-virus scanning, or WiFi redetecting routers, or anything else. What's using the most CPU on the task manager during that time?

            How is your platter drive hooked up? Is it SATA/USB/eSATA?

            When I had a sata drive hooked up via an external enclosure, my carPC would do this and things similar to it when it resumed, because it was trying to play its memory's buffer of the song, and the drive had yet to be activated to read in the next bit. After a minute or two the external drive would spin up and things would resume.

            I eventually just put the drive straight to the board and this problem went away. 2 years now with a WD500 and it has yet to rattle itself apart. :v

              1. onboard sound card.

              2. i would take a wild guess and say that the hib file is on the ssd.
              at the time if hibernate/resume , winamp is the only program running

              3. not antii virus, no wifi . i have not checked whats running via the task manager while resuming. i will try that tomorrow!

              4. the platter is hooked up via sata.

                try a different front end and see if the problem persist. i recommend freeice, its nice and light and easy to install.

                  i went back to centrafuse.
                  did some tests lastnight. i haven't gotten the issue yet.

                  i will continue to test.

                  i normally reserve centrafuse for when guests use my car, its easy.
                  just not for me, it does not excell at massive amounts of media.

                    Good idea. Even something like WMP or winamp. Start playing anything, hibernate and resume. If it has no issue, then your FE is the problem.

                      its funny, cuz it never did that before
                      i was using winamp cuz it was quick and never gave any issues.

                      i recently changed the motherboard+cpu
                      but the issue only started happening like 6weeks after i got them replaced

                        I use a sad for XP and a platter drive for media. I highly doubt it to be related to the drive.

                          hibernate is pretty awesome though when it works... i just like how everything stays the same as you last left it- thats how cars are supposed to be.

                          but the whole thing is ruined when you do get those weird problems (and they happen to all of us). i am also ditching hibernate, at least for awhile. if my system responds by being perfectly stable, i might set everything up to use asrock's instant boot- as thats the next best thing to hibernate.

                          and im not even sure whats so different from a desktop or a laptop. i use hibernate all the time on my hp tx2, but i guess since that doesnt have 15 accessories hooked to it and all of its parts are built to be compatible thats why it stays stable...

                            NO no no no no nooooo. Its like hibernate only much slower and far less stable...trust me avoid it! Its a giant marketing gimmick.
