I've got an external hard drive with music on it, around 250 albums. To make it work nicely with Banshee, I've created an
.is_audio_player file on the device, containing
Every time I plug it in, Banshee takes around two minutes to index the thing, slowly building up the library - and being unusably sluggish while doing that.
Is there, per chance, any way to speed it up? Should I not mount the hard disk as a music player, but add it's contents to my library? And, if I do, won't that give me lots of annoying X symbols next to the titles, as they can't be found sometimes?
What's the best way to have my library on an external HDD?
