Adding music clips slows all down in EMC 9


soccrfn

Question

I just added 2 gb of memory so EMC9 seems to work prety well. but as soon as I try to access my audio file folder, it takes about 3 minutes just to pul up the directory. And moving between files takes forever.

 

About 40 gb free on a 180 gb drive.

 

Is there a limit on audio files that should be in one folder?

 

Or any other deas why it takes so long just to access the audio folder?

 

This is unaccepatble.

I deleted EMC 9 and did a clean reinstall of EMC 7.

 

Works fine. Not sure what I really would have gained with EMC 9 anyway.

 

I have about 4 day left of my 30 day refund.Is it worth taking the chance to reinstall EMC 9.

 

What benefits would there be? All I do is basic video editing and adding music for home movies.

 

Nothing spocial.

If you happen to want to do any video work with widescreen, you can't do it in EMC 7 or 7.5.

I gathered by your first three sentences/paragraphs that you were not happy so your last sentence was truly unnecessary. This is a users forum and not Roxio so if you want to complain, do it directly to them, not here. :angry2:

 

Turn off Media Manager Services and Watched folders from Windows msconfig; start up tab.

 

The audio application from the home page or the one that is listed as "...for car or home audio CD" loads all the music files every time you open the project. I don't think it can be turned off. However, if you are making a CD, mp3 or DVD with audio, use the Music Disc Creator from the Home Applications page. It doesn't load all the files so it will be faster.

 

If you are working on a video project, put the images/videos and a copy of the audio files into one project folder so the program doesn't have to search your hard drive for them.

You are a hit and run poster in your past threads. You don't come back and answer any questions. That is unacceptable. ;)

I do not see these two services in Startup or Services.

 

I still not sure if you are doing audio projects or video projects. You just mentioned that you have a lot of audio files and that the Application takes a lot of time to search for the files. It would help if you at least told us what application you are using or how you are getting to that application.

 

If audio projects, did you try Music Disc Creator? Regardless of what else you do, if you use the audio programs that search your hard drive, you will not speed up the process. If you are using this application, don't This one will search for all files. Look down to the right and select setting to turn off which folders are searched but it will still do some searching.

 

 

 

If you cannot find the Media Manager services, then perhaps you already disabled them or never installed them. Open Media Manager and go to the top menu select tools then start watching. A window will open select your desired actions. Make sure the other two services are off also

 

 

 

I believe that you can uninstall Media Manager so you don't have those options at all. I sometimes want to use some of the application so I leave it on.

 

Come back and let us know how you are getting along or to just answer my questions.

I apologise for my last comment. I was just a little frustrated.

 

I will try what you say. Are you saying if I copy the video and audio files into one project foler, it will only read that folder, correct?

 

Thanks

Usually, the responses are so helpful, they help me figure out the problem right away.

That is why it is important to come back and let folks know. Someone else, down the line, may have the same problem as you, and read the thread that you were in. If you post that it worked, it may work for them.

I am using Videowave for video editing. I am not making audio cds.

 

1) I open Videowave.

2) Add and edit some some video clips

3) Add some trasnsitions, ovelays, etc. All seems to work fine at this point.

4) When I then am ready to add an audio file from "My Music" directory, it hangs for about 2 minute before pulling up the list of audio files in the "My Music" folder.

5) When the list of files finally pull up, it won't let me scroll as it still seems to be trying to "search" files or something. I attempt to choose one file, and it hangs for another 30 seconds+ before pulling it into the box, so I can click"open."

6) After clicking "open", it then takes another 30 seconds + to add it to the audio track.

 

I have split the audio files into different directories soI have less files in one dirctory, but that does not seem to make any difference at all.

 

I have deactivated the "Watch Folders" service in Media Manager, but still looking for disabling the Media Manager.

 

I disabled all the Roxio services and got an error so I made them all manual, but none we started. Are there any Roxio services I should have ON definitely?

 

I used to have 7.5 and had no problems pulling up the audio files., even when all in the same folder.

 

Thanks for help so far.

Bring up the Windows Task Manager, then do steps 4 and up. Check the Task Manager to see what active process is taking place. Let us know.

 

BEFORE:

 

STATUS was "Stopped" for all these

 

-RoxmediaDB9

-Roxio Hard Drive watcher

-Roxio UPnP Renderer 9

-Roxio Upnp Serever 9

 

AFTER opening Vidowave and adding video:

 

STATUS was "Running" for

 

-RoxmediaDB9

 

and "Stopped" for

 

-Roxio Hard Drive watcher

-Roxio UPnP Renderer 9

-Roxio Upnp Server 9

 

I then tried to add an audio file, Same result. Files take forever to pull up.

Well, I gave up and decide to do a complete clean reinstall, and of course, just as others have warned, the CD key does not work, and the emc9rmv.exe patch fix gives me an error:

 

" NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction."

 

 

How much effort do I put into this. I'm still within my 30 days of refund which is looking very tempting.

Just for fun ( :rolleyes: ?) turn on watched folders for that music folder. It will take a few minutes to catalog all the files. Once that is done, try adding the music to VideoWave to see if having all the audio files "pre-listed" speeds it up.

 

Have you tried setting the view of the folder to something that is a list rather than a thumbnail?

What operating system are you using? Server?

What a complete waste of effort. I have uninsatlled EMC9 complety and asked for a refund. The odds of me getting that are not good but I'm gonna try.

 

Very disapointing.

 

Well, you gave it a shot, anyway. Folks here might have saved you a lot of misery had you posted your system specs when you were asked to do so.

GRANDPA BRUCE,

 

I'm sorry to be blunt, but enough with your arrogant responses. You've done no good to me to try to solve the problem. All your comments are critical remarks. Is that your role here?

 

I tried to give information asked of me, and it is obvious that no matter what happened, the problem would not have been solved. I have spent hours and hours with this, and read many of other threads with similar problem and not solved. Roxio support has been completely unresponsive.

 

People do try to help and I appreciate their attempt, and I do not blame them for Roxios lack of support. As for you, get off your high horse. Maybe you can spend 24 hours clickin on a keyboard critticizing what people write, but we'll al don;t have that time.

 

It is people like you who turn people off these forums, where they actually may been helped.

 

So stop the patronizing comments. Either try to help, or leave it alone.

 

 

THREAD CLOSED!

My response was not intended to be arrogant at all. Your response to me, in your other thread, was arrogant. If you had something that isn't up to snuff with your computer, which I think must be the case, we could have pointed it out, as we have to many other folks having problems. Most of those folks took our advice, if they could, and most of the time, they overcame the problems that they were having.

 

You opted not to do that.

 

I am not on any high horse. I have helped a lot of people who have had problems. I was willing to help you. It was your arrogance that prevented that from happening, not mine.

 

The thread is really now closed.
