hi just got a new computer a couple days ago, and i just transferred my music onto my new computer (via putting the files onto my ipod then cut/pasting them) However when i try to access my "My Music" folder it crashes and an error message pops up saying that explorer.exe had come across an error. the other thing is that i can still get to my music by going through using itunes. I can still add the music files into itunes via that folder, but i just can't access it. I've searched on google and these forums, people have had similar problems but i have yet to see anyone that found a solution... Anybody encounter this before? Also could it be the amount of music i have (14gigs), but i know plenty people that fill up 60 gig ipods...

Hello Alex HO,

Is the music devided into folders or just a list of music?

Is the Music Actually copied over to your hard drive?

Download HDtune in my signature give it a run report back if any errors.

hi thanks for replying.

the music is just a list, also i managed to get into it by renaming the folder to just "music" i guess i technically found a fix but it still bothers me that i can't get into the folder if it is named "my music". I'm running the scan now will get back to you shortly.

okay i ran the test, but everything was green so nothing wrong with my hd, alothough it was running at a constant 53-55 degrees celcius, the alert kept telling me it was at a critical temp... will this be a problem, my new computer is also a notebook, hp says its an "entertainment notebook" so it doesn't exactly run at the coolest temperatures either...

i attempted to rip songs off my ipod using a program but it ripped each song idividually and i have 14+ gigs worth, i didn't really feel like waiting...

edit* - just finished reading over the page, i don't think it allows me to get all my songs onto a folder where i can change and edit, i think it simply gives you your itunes library back. thanks anyways though.

Ok those temperatures are fine. Is the issue still accruing? Is it just your music folder that has this problem or other folders too?

It's just the music folder, i can access it now since i renamed it to just "music", but if i rename it back to "my music" it does the same thing, don't know why...

Something that can cause problems, if you have thumbnail view enabled and there are many files in a folder that can cause Explorer to crash.
