mediacenter- music load time way to long, how to speed up?
Running pretty fast system e6600 oc'd to 3.6, 4gb pc8500, 10k raptor raid
boot drive, 8800gts, vista64

Problem is I have a VERY large music collection and it still takes media
center forever to load, talking minutes here, not seconds. Most thumbnails
don't show up in mediacenter though they all do in mediaplayer. I have a
folder.jpg inside every single album folder, so makes no sense why it's not
showing up in mediacenter.

Purchased a 4gb sandisk cruzer u3, installed and chose readyboost. Rebooted,
then opened and closed media center probably 2 dozen times. Load time for
music didn't change after first time, still very slow.

question:
Is there anyway to 'cache' my music database from media player onto my
readyboost manually?
If not.... what's a guy to do? any other ideas on how to speed things up
just for mediacenter load?

Is your PC a Dell? I had the exactly same problem, and was fixed by the
following:

* Install the Sigmatel STAC92XX C-Major HD Audio Driver
* When finished, restart the PC
* Click Start- Control Panel- Sound
* Right click on the Speaker/Headphones icon and choose properties
* Click on the "enhancements" tab
* Select the "Disable all enhancements" check box
* When finished, restart the PC

Never mind what I posted.
I thought you had a delay before playing songs.

This maybe a thumbnail problem. Try to turn off thumbnails?
