  • Prefetch and Dump

    ...For lack of better terminology.
    What I would like the computer to do is pre-load each song (in it's entirety) once the song has been selected so the hard drive isn't loading little bits at a time as it plays. Then dump the file once the next song is loaded. Maybe it is a bad Idea, but I can't stand to watch the hard drive spin (light flashing) all the time.
    Does anyone know what I am talking about, or know how to accomplish this?
    Thanks much

    I know what you're talking about. I did this with my last player. To accomplish this I wrote my own software. This may have been overkill.
