hey. thanks for the reply.
i manually went through and all my sample folders have turned blue which i thought meant they were indexed. but i still have the loading up for the first time problem. which i timed and takes just over 10 minutes to load up, even though i have no third party vsts installed. it takes the longest time when the loading screen comes up and it is at “initializing content”.
i still do have v5 installed, so i restarted my pc and ran that for the first time, and that has a heap of third party vsts installed and it takes about 1 minute to load.
i have noticed something else related to the media bay. Even though all the folders are blue and i have rescanned the whole sample drive, only some seem to be indexed correctly. as when i click on some of them the samples files come up in the auditioning window right away, while when i click on other folders, the files dont change to that of the highlighted folder, and the animaton to the top right of the auditioning window starts loading and taking a long time to load the files in the highlighted folder. then when i close it at this point, a window pops up “updating media files” which sometimes appears in the middle of the screen and sometimes more commonly appears off my screen where i can only see about a quater of the window where the “abort” button is.
further to this presets seem to be doing the same thing now too. some will play fine (even though they take a few seconds to load up) as i scroll though the presets, it begins loading and taking around 5-10 mintues for the preset list to come up in the preset window. i havent tried all the vsts yet but it seems to be doing this freezing load up thing after a short while, when choosing presets and the same as the media bay issue.
what i will do is uncheck my sample driver and restart my pc and check it again and let it index it all again and see how i go. also which folders should be checked as the default to load all the cubase samples?
i remember having drama with cubase 5 and media bay not long ago and i had to take out .rex files and some other types to get it working 100%. would that have anything to do with this?
please help asap,
