    Default Traktor crashed last night

    So Im playing at a gig and using traktor, I noticed when I load a track or copy from deck b to a my load meter jumps heavily and traktor screen blinks and for a momentary time, freezes. As the night goes on this would happen not the same all the time but eventually my Traktor did freeze and I had to shutdown and restart my laptop 3 times during the gig. Has anyone experienced any issue related to this.

    Thank you in advance DJ Tarco

    No not at all, did you have any other programs opened? Did you reboot your laptop in advance? Because otherwise you might be in the market for a new laptop/fresh OS installation on your laptop.

    Yes, but which Traktor version is it?
    Haven't had a single crash with 2.9 and I'm using it every day like a mad man.

    Are you using an external HD? How old is your internal HD?

    Could be a lot of different reasons for this occurring. Bad MP3's, progs open in background, subversive malware, midi controllers (unlikely-but possible load meter issues) hard drive, RAM, do you use your computer for anything else other than music?
    I had a crash 2 times on the road. One due to a power fault, other unexplained.

    The topic of bad MP3's has come to mind currently trying to use MP3eval to see if thats the problem. Next im gonna try that malware issue, can you recommend a program that would be good for that. No i just use it for DJing and a few browsing on the net.

    I had the exact same issue when my hard drive started dying, Make sure to back up your collection asap and then look into if there are any problems with either of your drives.
