Strange activity at startup
« on: November 05, 2012, 02:06:48 pm »
As a new user I'm puzzled. When I start VinylStudio I can enter the details, then select Record. At this point it spends 5 minutes (which is a very long time!) working the hard disc at full speed before presenting permission to put the needle down. Subsequent recordings (on the same day) don't need this. What on earth is going on?

No idea.  It's certainly not normal.  As a diagnostic, could you please download the following program and run it while VinylStudio is thrashing the disk:

Then please email the file it produces to:

and I will take a look.
