Hi, I’ve already browsed the other similar topics regarding corrupt database. Here is how mine is different: I do not use Engine Prime (or any DJ music library management). I purchase my songs online and drag them into organized folders on my USB flashdrive (Been doing this since I’ve owned my players). I do not know how this happened. Possibly, when someone accidentally unplugged my power source weeks ago. Once, (2 months ago) I had to remove my flashdrive from the player after following procedure to safely remove several times and the icon was stuck spinning after 5 mins. I’ve used many times since then, but the last 2 weeks while playing, the “Database of (USB-1) is corrupt and may not work properly” displays.
Once I select “OK” the crates disappear from both linked players “No tracks found” Then, Player 2 will prompt me with the “Select Media Source” screen as if I had just input my flashdrive. This has happened consistently since the issue started, and is stressful to the max. I have to continue playing at my events, just repeatedly selecting the prompts, hoping for no abrupt crash from the players.
Here is the info about what I am using with the SC5000s (and answers to questions asked)
What version of Engine Prime are you using? 1.3.1 (not trying to use Beta before weddings and holiday season) >> but if that is the only answer, I’ll do it!! Have a wedding this weekend.
Are you able to consistently reproduce the behavior with specific workflow steps? If so, please outline the exact steps to reproduce. Yes. I simply input my flashdrive into USB-1 (front) and after a few minutes (or songs), the “Database of USB-1 is corrupt…” dialogue box pops up. Once I select OK. Players still work (but crates disappear), and then Player 2 prompts “Select Media Source” After playing 1 song, the “Database is Corrupt…” pops up again and this goes on until my set is finished!
Is this happening with the internal HDD or external media devices or both? External (SC5000, not Prime 4).
What brand media device and capacity? Sandisk Extreme USB 3.0 (32 GB)
What is your eject process for media devices on Prime hardware? Press “Media Eject” button, after a few seconds shows empty grids, and I remove. The one exception is noted above, but this occurred a month before and still played fine without any issues (until the last 2 weeks).
At this point, I just need my music to play on my players. Can I simply delete the Engine Library folder on my flashdrive? What could happen? Do I have to reformat my entire flashdrive?
Please help immediately. Wedding this Saturday. Thank you.
