I've just got the DMIX 600. I downloaded the cortex database manager and created a database on a memory stick after dragging and dropping the music files I wanted to play onto it first (they were MP3s on my computer in a folder). I plugged the memory stick into the DMIX 600 and it worked fine, and the full search terms appeared on both decks. I repeated the process using a new seagate 500Gb external desktop hard drive and for some reason the full search terms only appear on one deck (i.e. search title, search artist, search genre, search bpm etc). The other deck displays only the following three options: playlists, file browser and setup menu - nothing else. I've tried lots of different things like adding the music after creating the database but no joy - it simply won't display the full search menu on both sides. Even after verifying the database as the instructions tell you to whilst on the computer.
Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a way round it? As far as I can see, the only way round it is to create a temporary database using the dmix 600 itself - but this is not ideal as you can't use the computer software at all to create playlists, waveforms etc because to do this you have to create a database on the drive on the computer and as soon as you do this and plug it back into the dmix 600 the search terms disappear from one deck. Strangely, after inserting the memory stick into the dmix it asks if you want to verify the database but this doesn't happen with the external hard drive - it just goes straight to the menu when you click on it. Any help appreciated!
