    Smile Muse Slooow startup - SA4MUS08KF/12

    Hi Forum
    Im running a Muse: SA4MUS08KF/12

    I have a 16GB SD card (Class 4) freshly formatted with 6.5GB of MP3 files, but every time I switch my Muse on it takes 35seconds to startup even if nothing changed since the last time I turned on my muse. Its normal for players like the Sansa's to take a while to re index if something has changed in the file system, but the Muse takes ages every time, god knows if it was filled with 40GB of mp3s.

    Whats more is that the Muse seems to have issues after startup to generate the list of Artists, this takes a further 7 seconds before the list can be scrolled through.

    Is this normal?
    Can it be fixed?

    Thanks K.

    Hey

    I thought this too when I first got my gogear, but it turns out it just takes longer to load up cos it is an SD card you are using for storage and the contents have to be read by the player which takes longer. When I tested it with just the internal memory it was much quicker.

    Hi Bobbletop,

    Thanks, interesting, wonder why its slower, I even tried a Class 6 and class 10 SD card and it did not make a difference. I dont think the Philips solution is particularly good here, a Cowon device I tried was always fast, my old Sansa Fuze takes a minute if data changes on the card by between changes the startup time is always quick.

    I had to to the Muse back to the shop in the end, I liked the Hardware and Sound quality but when ever I had to turn to the ui it annoyed me such a shame.

    Thanks Take it easy
