Do you have any other programs running while this happens, multiple instances of MM,
perhaps? Shutdown if so, to test. Disable antivirus temporarily as well.

Retry MM behavior.

Does this happen when you start up or at other times. Is there a repeatable pattern? Do you have the service installed? What version of MMW are you using?

something must be locking it. Error is generic System one.

I am getting this running multiple instances so I can mix the music and I am now getting this message. It does not occur with a single instance and it occurs when the track ends. I am wondering what you are updating at the end or the beginning of a track and is there a way to turn the update off?
