Default Building the database

I'm trying to initialize the database on my fuze v2. I tell it to initialize and it starts "building the database" but after 5 hours it's STILL loading the database. How long is it supposed to take?

I've looked in the manual but I couldn't find anything...

I've never timed it, but it's super fast for my 6gb e200 or even faster on my 2gb clip, so I'd say something is wrong but I'm not sure what.

On my Fuze, it took about 20 minutes to load for the first time. Are you using a microsd?

Hey, no expert...suggest you wait for saratoga or funman who usually peruse these forums but I will suggest you select UPDATE NOW in the database options screen.

My initial db setup took only a few minutes on a full 8GB+16GB Fuze v2.

Also, what RB build are you using?

good luck,

It should not take this long... My fully packed 32gb MicroSDHC card only takes about 15 minutes to build the database.

You probably need to check your tags. There might be a file with a corrupted tag or something like it on your player that stops the building. I had this problem once and went over all my tags with Mp3Tag (check Useful Tools in the Rockbox wiki). After that, it worked like a charm...

As mentioned above, comb through your tags with and try again.

Also try using chkdsk on your Fuze's internal memory.

another thing i do with any fuze/clip device that i find thats having troubles, format it with the sdformater (google it) it clears any problems to do with file system and tends to speed up file transfer a noticeable amount.

Thanks for all the help, guys.

lestatar, I tried choosing "update now" but it didn't seem to work. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "what build?" are you asking whether I'm using the current or daily?

I downloaded mp3tag and honestly, I don't know what I'm doing. I don't really have the time to go through all my files manually. What exactly am I looking for?
