    Problem Building Quicksound Database

    Hi everyone. I want to say that I'm glad this forum exists--I've learned a lot about Giga from lurking here.

    I just set up a new computer for GS3. I've copied all of my GS2.5 libraries on to my new 400 gig raid. When I launch GS 3.04 and attempt to build my quicksound database, giga starts scanning my drive alphabetically and then stops when it reaches the letter "e" (my Ethnoworld 2 library).

    I thought perhaps it was a bad file in the Ethnoworld folder, so I renamed the folder "ZEthnoworld" so it would be the last to be read--but giga keeps stoping. Any ideas? I can load all of my instruments, but I can't get quicksound to recognize them. I've checked my advanced search settings and the drive is selected all of the file types are clicked.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You probably have a bad gig file in there. Try copying the folder to your non-sample drive and erasing it from the sample drive. Then do the quicksound thing. After that try re-installing those gigs, or adding the gigs one at a time, until you find the culprit.

    Another possible approach would be to UNcheck all file types except .gig files -- sometimes it can take a long time to list all the .wav files or other types that other samples use.
