Number of Tracks in Library
Description of Issue
Where to Start.
ROON music often stops with a message along the lines of “track is loading slowly this could be a mechanical problem” or something alongs those lines. This seems to happen primarily (though not always) when ROON is scanning my library-I have added RAM to the Nucleus on the advice of ROON support. I have posted about this problem within the last 2 weeks but no response from anyone at ROON
I often use Shuffle. Roon will switch to the next song and often be hung up for a period minutes before music begins to play.
I have rebooted the Nucleus and network multiple times. Im at wits end…I was having the “track is loading slowly problem” some weeks back but that went away for a few weeks but now it is back.
i should also mention when navigating within the Ap information loads very slowly…for example going to the track or Artist section…it takes minutes for the information to appear
Well- I think I found the problem…in hindsite it now seems obvious–
it was likely the external drive. I disconnected it and changed my library to my NAS.
Library scanning much faster now and music playing without the slow track load issue.
I think you can close this thread before it ever gets going.
Ill head to bed withy fingers crossed
Rename the “RoonServer” folder to “RoonServer_old”
Restart the RoonServer in the WebUI to generate a new Database
On the Roon Remotes, press “Use another Core” and connect to the new database
Please test things out before restoring from a backup if testing out local file playback, I would suggest setting aside a small subfolder of tracks that you can easily add to your new database, without going through the motions of re-adding your entire library.
I did as you asked and Roon has just finished scanning my library.
Things have not improved.
When shuffling the next track is picked. It then has taken 2 min and 2 sec for the chosen track to begin playing.
So what next in figuring this out?
