  • Media car stops responding

    After awhile of playing it will totally stop responding when a button is clicked on. Button will stay highlighted but nothing will work, must do a three finger salute to get anything to work. Its not a crash becuase mp3 will continue playing.

    Only notice problem when playing mp3s. (ALL I do with it)
    tried to recreate the problem to see what caused it, no luck.
    It happens with different mp3s, different playlists, after 5 minutes one time, yet 2 hrs the next time.

    Doesn't happen when playing mp3s off a cd, just using a playlist.

    Once it happens, reopening MC and clicking on mp3 causes it to say "LOADING" like usual, but hangs indefentely.

    Any help appreciated. thanks

    one of the id tags is wrong. might be italisized or the name conflicts. scroll down your play list one by one, and when it crashes, that's the mp3 file w/ the bad tag. go down your list until you've got all of them. i had this exact same problem, and that's how i fixed it.

        MediaCar does have a bug that doesn't like some 'good' tags. I say they're good as they work in other programs ok.

        You can also turn off the option to read the tags in setup.
