Grr. . . Laptop Frustration. . .

So, as i want to have the laptop set up completely for the digital djing thing by Friday night when I'm supposed to be over an B and gwyll practicing 2 x 4's I last night had 6K of the 18K MP3's set up in Traktor Dj Studio 3 and was happily analyzing the files, for almost 16 hours.

So traktor does the following routine when analyzing files. Analyze list of files, write tags and stripes to update individual files, on close of software, update collection to reflect changes in files.

Now the fun part, Traktor had completed the analyzing of a the selected files, and was in the process of writing the files and stripes when I get a BSOD. . . FUCK. it lost off of that.

Set it up to do a smaller chunk and hopefully it will be done when I get home from work today.

hm. sounds like you really *don't* want that laptop.

bsod's these days are *usually* only because of buggy drivers, or flakey hardware. given the specs you spouted in an earlier post, i'd vote the latter.

any info on forums about bsod's and that laptop?

yeah, I'm thinking it's the same. I'll stress test it a bit. As far as I know at this point, they're just going to repair the backlight on my LCD and ship my old one back.

Havnt checked the forums, as of yet, if it happens again, I'll worry about it.

hey what kind of software do you use for DJing with MP3's (or whatever it is you're using)? if it's not a big convoluted explanation.. I've always wondered how one would do that, because my DJ days were over before MP3's became the shit, we were still doing the double CD player thing.

Traktor Dj Sutdio


I started with dual CD players and keep my practice up, for when I Dj at places that have an anti-laptop prejudice (kinda like the anti-cd prejudice that existed amongs vinyl only dj's on this time its some of the Vinyl and CD Dj's)

I use a hercules midi dj console as a midi controller for Traktor giving me instantanious hands on control over the music, it's not done with mouse and keyboard.
