View Full Version : Slow indexing of a new shared drive (XP)

Yep - that was the next step - but I had some worries over the RAM in the
disk which is 128MB, I wanted to get that upgraded to 512MB but am not sure
if it socketed even. Opening the case voids the warranty :-( . This was a
first step - getting all the music on there.

- before on my server it really struggled with 256MB RAM, almost everything
took ages - it still does a little with 512K but it is much better.
Searching for a song by title will still blank the Slim players for a good 2
mins though ...

I've opened mine and it's a mini-itx motherboard with regular socketed
RAM.

Wow, that shouldn't happen. How big is your library.
