    I also have the shut down problem with Windows Milliennium Edition. Media Engine just hangs, no shutdown at all. Its not the OS its Media Engine.

    I was told to upgrade to 2000 or XP.

    Heh. Well the mediaengine shutdown code is written per microsoft's recommendations... It works fine for me and many others... I think it is a hairy deal... You must understand that mediaengine is meant to run in a car environment on a clean PC... Perhaps..
    Get MediaEngine !!!
    Media Engine Download

    Mastero,

    Your right it probably is a ME problem, just upgrade to Win2K/WinXP.
    You'll get some other advantages such as NTFS rather than Fat32.

    In the car environment where you may get an accidental shutdown or reboot, you won't have to see scan-disk run under NTFS. This is because NTFS will hot fix all the errors on reboot. Plus, NTFS is more efficient in storage of data too(more MP3s).

    Upgrading will probably correct all your other problems too, because they wrote this for Win2K/WinXP.

    My two cents.......

    Did any one get any where with this ? I am building my own machine on my desk at the mo...I have tried ME and I have tried 98 get the same problem... either its to the windows logon screen ( wtf ? - I don't use this and yes I know I still logon in the background ) or I just get loading as a message on the screen.

    That 'loading' msg also happerns when I exit my sat nav software Destinator - it does not go back to Media E.

    I will 'possible try XP if I need to but does any one know how to set XP to logon with out any interaction ?

    Thanks

    I have the shutdown problem. I started with an absolute minimum win98 install, then ran lite98 to take out the most stuff i could. I then installed ME and whenever i press the shutdown button, it brings up the windows login prompt over the top of the ME shell.

    I'm not too worried, i'll use a girder command to shutdown instead.


    cheers,
    sean.
