I have an Ipod 4G Color and tried to activate the tagcache for a collection of 12.000+ Songs (~60 GB, mainly AAC-encoded). As it worked for smaller collections (also AAC), it did not work out for my full collection. The tagcache_tmp file in .rockbox is not deleted, committing tagcache at startup broke at 4/10. When trying to use ID3-Database, I get the error "tagcache not ready".
This task depends upon

I have a 4G color as well with 10,379 files (60GB mostly MP3's). Rockbox version 2006/8/17. It takes about 30 min for the tagcache to run. I rebooted and the cache was applied however when attempting to access music it said tagcache not ready. I disabled load to RAM and re-ran initialize now and it ran for another 30 minutes. But this time it worked. Hope this helps.

Same problem here. I wonder, does haveing songs in the apple Frimware have any effect on how tagcache work. Also, when i hit initalize now, the HD spins for less than 2 minutes.

I sent the patch file of this bug (FS #5934).

Please confirm the following execution file (FS #5534 applied file) is used,
and this bug doesn't occur.

Moreover, please give the report to me when this files are used, and the problem

It is thought this bug having occurred because there are a lot of songs with
too long title (> 20 bytes).
