Buffering Problem [Hardware Problem]
« on: October 12, 2014, 11:50:16 am »

Buffering Issue

MC20 keeps halting with a message that it is buffering. Nothing on my system has changed since I was running MC19 with no issues.

Benchmark Info:

Running 'Math' benchmark...
    Single-threaded integer math... 3.565 seconds
    Single-threaded floating point math... 2.362 seconds
    Multi-threaded integer math... 1.129 seconds
    Multi-threaded mixed math... 0.685 seconds
Score: 2455

A couple of possibilities:
Antivirus
Disk storage

The files aren't available to MC.

The files are available; after a long delay, they continue playing (most of the time). Files are on an internal drive that is only 65% full. My security settings haven't changed since MC19, which never had this problem.

If you are running/playong these files over the network, try copying one file to the computer your playing from just to rule out network issues. I've had this trip me up before.

Apparently,  my hard drive is going bad; MC20 just happened to be the first app to feel it's effects...
