how long are you waiting before you ctrl-alt-del? sometimes when i switch up my music folders it takes a minute to sync them up.
So I have three music folders, one is C:/Music/Rap, the other two are C:/Music/Techno and C:/Music/Random.
The Random folder was the first one I put on the computer a while ago. I put the other two in a couple weeks after, but whenever I'm in Mobile Impact and I press the folder the program freezes and I can't do anything but reset the PC or press CtrlAltDel and close the program.
I don't get why only the Random folder works but the others don't?? I don't remember changing anything else with the computer that would affect it...
How many songs are in your random folder compare to the other? I notice there is a slight delay when loading up a folder that has many files vs smaller one. Depending on your hardware, it could take longer.
CAR:06 350Z | LCD:Xenarc 700TSV | PS:M2-ATX | CPU:2.0GHz Turion 64 | MB:GA-K8N51GMF | RAM:1GB PC3500 DDR | HDD:WD 250GB SATA | USB1:Zoom 140M WiFi | USB2:iOne Scorpius Keyboard | USB3:Logitech Wingman | SERIAL:GPS BR-355
The Rap folder is 22gigs, the Techno is 6 and Random is 21....I'll admit I didn't wait more than a minute but I didn't think it would take that long for it to load up...I'm using a Sempron 2800+/512 ram/ 250gb 7200rpm hdd
I wish I could test it out but the carPC isn't connected since I'm in the middle of putting my HU back in with a little bit of cutting the dash up thrown in...
The Random loads up immediately when I go into MI so I don't see why the others would take over a minute?
yeah. you aren't waiting long enough for those files to sync up. the same thing happens to me every time i rearrange my files. esp. with 22 gig folders... you have to give it a few minutes. the reason your random folder works is cause MI has already seen the files there. the other dirs are new.
Are all the mp3 files in the 22 gig folder all in the same folder? If that is the case, I would recommend that you split them up in folders as the program has to dump all the file names into the filelist and so it could be causing the delay. Let me know; thanks.

PS I installed RoadRunner and it works fine all the folders load up instantaneously but certain things about RR annoy me. The one thing I do like is having the Play/Next/Back/Stop buttons all on the left side when youve got the playlist on with the skin I was using, is much easier than having to bend over a bit to push Next with MI..
I have the same exact problem.
Though i am a bit more patient. I waited for 2-3 mins.

Does it matter that I stopped the indexing service of WinXP?
Indexing is enabled and still the same problem
forgot to mention that i have the problem even in folders of 20files or so.
But after the 3minute wait, the next time you turn on your car does it load up faster or do you still have to wait a while?
