monkey does keep data in ram until he can write the tags. if you do lots at once he might be running the ram to nothing is free. and the cpu is trying like crazy to get the data taged. if you have a super fast cpu it might be the reason monkey has not crashed till then. a slow cpu would crash faster if that was the cause of the issue.
go in to mediamonkey's options and to the one for library and tags. or player and tags? your looking for the option that has monkey update tags as they are edited. make sure that is checked on.
also speeding up mediamonkey does help in this issue of cpu being used up. go to the task manager and right click
on the mediamonkey.exe you find in the process tab list. there should be only one listed find it and do that right click
then on that context menu move mouse pointer to set priority link
then move the mouse over to real time ( on xp's ) high (on win7) and click it.
then get out of the task manager, that will give more cpu threads to mediamonkey and
allow it to get the data saved faster.
after you get through with your cd's do a major defrag of your hd and make your page file a fixed one by setting it to the max it suggests if you have one hd. go up 300 for each hd extra or split the page file over all of them to total 1500 mb's
and make the min.. one or two mb's less then the max that way its fixed but allows windows 1 or 2 mb's for its need to adjust.
clean your prefetch and your page file thats about all you can do i think because you sound like your running out of hd space.
if you did not know each hd needs about 200 mbs for its own use so make sure you leave that much or a little more as free space.
