Hello I've posted numerous times for help

 
game freezing on load up 
I've tried EVERYTHING!
 
now most of my customs (about 1000) on HDD with my dlc a harmony upgrade, i create song cache with TU5 cos of dani california and black hole sun....... .... this is fine game loads ( but i know i can't play the customs cos its TU5)
 
Now switch usb sticks loading up with TU4 stick ......freeze
I use Xbox 360, Theres only 85 songs on this tu4 stick (so if I'm correct the issue is this stick)
 
I gone through everything deleted duplicates or previous versions on the internal HDD, checked the file name isn't too long and shortened where i can
....if I've done it correctly ?
 
now I've done some screenshots below if you guys can see anything wrong i can't see please tell me. I understand xbox doesn't like spaces or odd characters ?

 

the .dms part i believe is because when i go to download customs, it downloads them as .dms to my apple mac, which i believe treats them as zipped files or unachieved files with a brown envelope logo..... since the screen shot as suggested i edit those out is i cut it down to _rb3con and the file turns blank white(like a text/word page document)

get the .dms endings out of there. just each song should end in rb3con.

dl  a song here and  go look at its ending...

for info purposes that I've seen for years, i use velocity on mac because don't have good access to windows

i think I've found the reason why it does .dms at the end because when i download them from where ever it classes them as .dms like a zipped/unachived file, when i cut the .dms out to just _rb3con then they go from brown zipped like files to plain white

 

i know I'm probably a pain for having a mac but its all i have

same thing i was thinking..ive never got a single  con zipped.

as someone thats used mac. just drag and drop its really the only way. delete the little 4kb file the mac makes.

ive never once got dms on the end so not sure what your doing there.

how i do my songs when i post them  example... The Eagles-Hotel California_rb3con

so hand change em all.

i don't know why they do it but i just download them on here using mac thats what they download as here show another example

 

just as a test downloaded the latest two customs today billy talent and knocked loose

 

BT i renamed manually to shorten (cos i believe xbox throws a wobbly with length of file name) and i also took out .dms and added _rb3con

(another question does renaming them here cause an issue?)

 

then download the other one i didn't change a thing so you can see what it says, take a look

I've done some digging i think its literally just a apple safari problem ...chrome doesn't do this 

 

i will try today if they has resolved the issue...however the issue may be something else

aftyer you  get rid of the dms..you have to delete your song cashe and start fresh

 

First off is it essential on the file name ending in _rb3con ? i made sure they all were  and is there any issues xbox doesn't like ? (spaces or - or ( ) number of characters etc)

 

yeah i tried that delete cache and rebuild.....in fact i even deleted them all off the stick and just added a batch of customs at a time and i thought i almost narrowed down the suspected dodgy custom to the last 12 customs or so

 

now  I'm starting to wonder maybe its the USB stick itself thats naff/corrupted in some way or velocity not working like it should

(I've replaced the TU4 incase that had been corrupted with a fresh download of it)

 

cos when i got down to the last 12 tracks after process of elimination 

 

i thought i sussed out which tracks were fine and which i hadn't checked i had 6 to go so i decided to add them 3 at a time now I'm certain i dropped three into the stick loaded it up just added two to the game...was fine went back to the computer 1 of the three didn't add or didn't show up on stick i add it again i load up the game it says added one file and freeze... i delete the 3 of them, yet it says trying to add 2 or 3 and  still freeze ( i assume I've upset the cache)

 

yet it still thought i was trying to add them even tho they are removed and when i load up the stick on the computer again i see duplicates on the usb stick on several customs which I'm certain i didn't duplicate in fact they had customs that had _rb3con at the and their duplicates did not have it which stuck out cos everything else has that ending. there was about 5/6 duplicates which appeared after the freeze

 

so i delete the cache and rebuild again 

 

also decided to delete the stick again to refresh it put them all on turns out i have 87 customs there not 85 and I'm sure i dropped all 87 to the usb but only 85 turned up in the game, took it back to  the computer two of them didn't add to the stick even tho I'm certain i added them 

 

i can't put my finger on whats going on so I'm going to try with a brand new bigger usb stick and see what happens

remember i mentioned while using a mac..it makes a little 4 kb file on your drive. put the drive in your xbox. go to where you can see whats on the drive on the xbox. i bet you have tons of corrupted mini files. if so just format itll be way easier and faster. dl the songs you want on chrome. and drag and drop em all. build fresh new cashe. i bet itll work. avoid safari(i never used it on mine so i learned something new today).good luck

I understand what you mean now and no, right so this tu4 stick i started using it way back when on an actual windows laptop which died now, that has tu4 and where i first put my first customs, cos of this i need to use velocity on mac to read the stick i can't just read that stick like any old usb 

 

i tried to start using a new usb this morning, which velocity will not read like my original tu4 stick and I've since seen the 4kb corrupt files of customs so i wont be using that stick unless i can get it to use velocity (which is a shame cos the new stick is much bigger 64gb unlike my original 16 gb customs tu4 stick)

 

anyway I've checked the original stick numerous times both on xbox and computer theres no 4kb corrupt files anywhere (atleast not something i can visibly see) 

 

but you did give me an idea to clear the system cache of the original usb stick lets hope this works
