Hi, everyone. I was hoping someone could help me. All of a sudden, I'm having trouble getting C3 Con Tools to load up so I can import my newest batch of customs to my USB stick. I've been using this stick for years and just used it a couple weeks ago, so I'm not sure what the issue is or how to fix it.

 

I insert my USB stick, open C3 Con Tools, select the RB to USB button like I usually do, and it starts loading all the customs from the flash drive. Every other time it takes a few minutes to load because I have over 2500 customs, and then once it loads, it will allow me to import the new tracks onto the stick. It won't let you do anything while the loading process is running. Now, the loading process goes on and on forever and will not stop. I let it load for hours last night and it still wouldn't stop. I'm not sure what could cause this. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the software, rebooted/shut down my computer, and tried it on different PC's. I figured if there was something wrong with the flash drive, it wouldn't let me start loading the songs at all; very strange since I used it a couple weeks ago in the game.

 

Has anybody ever come across this, or have any idea what may have caused this or how to fix it? I know it seems random, but unless I figure it out, I won't be able to load any new songs onto the stick, unless there's a different way to do it. I'd rather not have to delete everything and start over again if I don't have to.

 

I appreciate everyone's help. Thank you.

When I load up the game, they load fine. It's just now for some reason on my computer when I go to add new customs through C3 Con Tools, it never stops loading to put new songs on. It just spins and spins and spins. Usually it stops after five minutes and then it will let me import the new ones.

 

I've never tried the content/914 folder way; I'm not familiar with it but I might look into that if it's easy enough.

Thank you for that! Worked perfectly.

 

One more thing I thought of asking about the songs loading on the game: I did have a problem a while ago where the game froze every time, so I did delete the cache and let it rebuild again, which solved the problem. However, now when the game loads, it loads all 2500 customs as "Loading New Content" every time, as if I just imported all the customs this time. I was used to putting the flash drive in, turning on the game, then the downloaded content would load (all 2500 customs) and THEN the new content would load (which would be the newest batch of songs I added). So when in the game, I can sort by Date Added, and all my newest songs would filter up. Now, it loads all songs as new content every time so I can't sort by Date Added.

 

I know it has something to do with the cache. Is there supposed to be a song cache file on your HDD AND the flash drive, or just the HDD? I deleted the cache years ago but didn't run into this.

 

Thanks again. I appreciate it.

i just keep the one on the hd ..all you need

i compare the song cashe like a computer..8 out of ten times when you add and remove enough programs..clear the cookies fixes alot..so same mentality.
