Hi,

I'm running Control:PC 2.449(381) and trying to import a folder of previously ripped FLAC files (approx 400 albums in separate sub folders).

I start the import and the files/folders are scanned and start to be imported. After about 10 minutes though Control:PC seems to reset, goes back to the "Play" window and the Import stops.

It is gradually importing all the tracks but I was hoping to start off an import and leave it overnight to finish.

Has anyone else seen this / know how to fix it?

Cheers
Paul

Hello

Is your PC connected wirelessly? It is recommended to have it wired.

I had similar problems when I first got my MC200 I had a largish FLAC library for my Squeezebox system and naively tried to drag and drop the whole thing. It did what you've described and left a bit of a mess not really knowing what had imported and what hadn't. In the end I imported artist by artist and even then it would just decide to reset itself every now and then. It wasn't quite so smooth as I'd hoped! In the end I quickly filled the MC200 and bit the bullet to get an MD600 with various end points. I ended up having to repeat the import artist by artist as I decided this was the best way to ensure everything from the squeeze-server was imported. The MD600 seemed a lot more stable than the MC200 during the import process but you could still "overwhelm" it if you tried and get the thing resetting itself. (I say seemed, of course I was a bit wiser by then and treated it much more gently!)

This was a wired connection. it was a bit annoying to have to hand-hold the import quite so actively but it gave me the push to do some tidying up of the metadata as I went, especially the second time round when you've discovered a few foibles but they weren't quite annoying enough to stop listening and get them sorted after the first import!

Good luck with it, it is worth it!

Of course I posted earlier, started the import again (on the off chance), went to work, came back and it's run faultlessly all through the entire import.

Thanks for the pointers. I certainly need to tidy some of my metadata.
