    hi!

    I disable my pagefile in my system, however, when I try to add a pretty large list of music, aboiut 3-5k songs streetdeck just dissapears.. no error message, no nothing.. just.. *poof*

    is there a way to come around this poroblem?

    also as SD loads the playlists, it tend to "pause" for a while, as when the list is loading

    I have over 55,000 songs in my car and I do not have this problem.

    Many other users have found that certain file names cause problems.

    In order to trouble shoot, I recomend that you try adding only sections of the playlist at a time and see if it hangs on a certain section, then narrow it down till you determine if it's hanging on the same files.

    SD will pause for a while when loading larger play lists, it does this no matter what music player you use, winamp, WMP, iTunes, Foobar, etc. That doesn't sound like a bug.

    In fact, this issue doesn't appear to be a bug, but rather a support issue. Thread moved accordingly. If we determine this is infact a bug, then I will gladly move it back.

    I'm thinking that the lack of a paging file is the culprit here.

    If you've got a huge playlist and run out of physical RAM to be able to process the file, then something's going to crash.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    very good point Darque.

    Since this is such a stripped version of SD, it's going to be very difficult for us to trouble shoot.

    true, I cannot use the paging file since my system is running under HORM, only think I can do I think is to install a larger memory module, and get a bigger Compact flash card, however I am uncertain that if I am able to get an 8gb compact flash with 300x speed tho

    Who says you can't use a paging file under HORM?
    You just need to setup a paging file on another drive.
