Recently we’d been having computer problems.

The computer running RadioDJ was acting strangely, Large gaps of silence between tracks and some tracks were being cut off prematurely.

I knew when we started having these issues that it definitely wasn’t the software (Radio DJ) at fault.

Then without warning the external hard drive packed up giving us horrible I/O read errors which is strange considering it’s only around a year old.

We moved music files onto the spare hard drive in the main PC yesterday only to find that was also causing us the same large gaps of silence and tracks being cut off in RadioDJ.

Last night we moved one music folder over to the F:\ drive to run some more tests and today RadioDJ is playing away as it should crossfading as it should with no large gaps and no silence between tracks.

We now suspect both drives may have been corrupted one way or another by a slight millisecond power outage.

We should have realised what was going wrong. We’re both knowledgable enough around computers.

So after all the headaches it’s turned out to be a computer hardware/disk issue that was to blame for all problems we were having.

Top Tip: If you’re experiencing the same issues with tracks not playing or skipping/freezing in RadioDJ have a look at your hardware/disks they could well be the culprit/cause.

Computer Peripherals don’t last forever.
