Hi everyone,

 

I've read it was 2,964, or 2,952

 

I loaded exactly 2,964 games on my system, judging from SetList manager reporting it from the song cache anyways....and it freezes..I took like 100 songs off just to make sure the drive was good, and it is...

Just hoping for more specifics, thanks!

2952 gives you the 3k song limit message. after that they stop loading in

I removed enough songs in the meantime for it too load, but noticed my total songs reported are only 1,911...which is far lower than the total tracks I have (over 2500 customs on the flash alone before other songs are counted)...do I need to delete the SongCache in the Xbox settings or what else could be going on?

Actually I just realized after typing that, that SetList Manager is showing tongs of duplicates, but I know I don't actually have duplicates...I chose to create an EMPTY playlist then imported the song cache, and it still shows 1,184 exact dupes...

I'm confused.

You may have DTA issues somewhere.  Bad DTA files can cause anything from actual crashes to weird song info and tallies like what you're seeing.

Hmmm...What is the best way to find bad DTA files?

Sorry to say it can be a needle in a haystack search.  One of the more reliable ways is to start with half your song collection, load it in the game, and see if there is trouble.  If there is, that's where your problem is; otherwise it's in the other half.  Then take the problematic half, split it in half again, and so on, until you've narrowed it down to the specific song.

 

Then, if you're as lucky as I am, you fix that song, load everything up again, and then have it fail on another song you have to look for.

 

Another way is to add a few songs at a time, say a dozen or so.  This way can take longer if it's just one or two problematic songs, but can also be faster if you have more potential suspects.
