Half My Songs Won’t Load On My Backup PC
I have two ACER Aspire laptops with Win 7 Home Premium. One I use as my \\\"master\\\" and the smaller one as a back-up.

I have Microstudio 4.40.00 installed in both laptops and the same song folders installed in both laptops at the hard drive C:\\\\MTU\\\\ and that\\\'s the folder I use as the default for Microstudio.

When I open Microstudio on the \\\"master\\\" all the songs load onto the left side of the screen and the program works. However, when I open the program on the back-up laptop about 40% of the songs load on the left and the blue indicator stops at approx. 1461 of 3825 songs and stays that way for a few minutes and then the indicator goes away. The program will work with the decreased number of songs. However, If I click on the \\\"refresh\\\" button the blue process indicator goes through the total songs and then freezes and nothing works.

When I use Hoster 6.01.02 it works on both computers.

While this is not a real serious problem like it would be for Hoster, I would like to find a solution to my Microstudio program.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Normally that occurs when it finds a bad file.

Does the C: drive MTU folder have multiple folders in it or are the song files directly listed in that main folder ?

If they are all listed in the main folder you should see a .txt file named “Microstudio-Karaoke-List.txt” Try copying that file from the working computer to the one that fails.
Then see if they all list but don’t press the refresh button again else it will overwrite that file.

If you have multiple folders within the main folder this probably wont work but give it a try and see how you get on.

Re: Half My Songs Won\\\'t Load On My Backup PC

I was not surprised when I saw your response, you are always there when someone needs help.

In answer to your question, I have five folders with songs located in my C:\\MTU\\ folder. The largest file is the one that seems to be the problem, all the songs missing are from that folder. When they are loading all the other folders load all the songs except for that one.

I already copied Microstudio-Karaoke-List.txt from my master to my back-up laptop. I also copied all the song folders from my master to my back-up.

I also selected just the large folder as my default and tried to load them, but once again most songs didn\'t load.

Thanks for the response, I\'m glad you are always helpful.

Have you tried re copying Just that Large folder to the backup since noticing the problem ?

Another simple thing to try might be to re download the install file and re install.

Re: Half My Songs Won\\\'t Load On My Backup PC

I deleted and installed Microstudio-Karaoke-List.txt with no change in results.

Right now I am in the process of copying the large folder of songs which will take about two hours to copy and two more hours to load into the MTU folder on my back-up laptop.

I plan on deleting and re-installing the Mircostudio program. I already did it once, but will do it again and then see the total results, and post them here.

Thanks again,

Re: Half My Songs Won\\\'t Load On My Backup PC
I did all that I indicated in my last posting, and nothing has changed except it stops at a different place.

I\'ll try one more time to re-do the program and then get back with this thread.

Does this large folder have other subfolders within it ?
If not next time, In Microstudio press the folders button, in the folders list, remove all listed folders, then just add that one main folder your having problems with, after it’s loaded press the Refresh button. Take note again how many songs xxx out of xxxx it shows. if it still fails to list all open the folder containing all the files and find the “Microstudio-Karaoke-List.txt”

Copy it and see if you can attach that file to your next post so that I can read it.

Re: Half My Songs Won’t Load On My Backup PC
I removed the location c:\\MTU for the songs and then added the large folder, Karaoke Files and the program loaded 1074 of 3712.

I then selected REFRESH and it indicated 3712 of 3712 and then locked up. I repeated the same steps and not much changed.

This is a copy of the file you requested:

Re: Half My Songs Won’t Load On My Backup PC
That is not the file I was asking for, but that’s irrelative now as it seems it has gone through the full amount 3712 files this time.

Why it’s locking up now I don’t know. Sometimes there will be a long pause at the end of the refresh before it moves on. Have you tried rebooting the computer see if it clears anything.

Re: Half My Songs Won’t Load On My Backup PC

Sorry I didn\'t send the correct file, but I can\'t find any other Microstudio file.txt on either computer. Also when I did the refresh the blue indicator did go through all the songs the it was not a success. So it still does not work.

I appreciate all the help you have given me to help solve this Mircostudio problem, and all my past problems with Hoster.

I think it is time for me to throw in the towel and stop wasting your valuable time. I can still go to my master laptop for all things related to Microstudio, so I really do not need it in the back-up.

My back-up laptop is in case the Hoster program in my main laptop has a problem and I can switch to using the back-up Hoster in my back-up laptop.

Once again, thanks for all your efforts now and in the past, and I am sure in the future. You have always been there for me as well as others on this forum.
