That’s far from “outrageous”, as you will have installed a new µSD card. At one point, the device HAS to read the contents of that card for the database to be built.
On the other hand what IS outrageuos, is the new capacity. Can I order a 32GB card? Hehe.
I do want to get a 32 GB card eventually to hold my entire music collection with room to spare. It is past 8000 tracks. I understand the memory requirements to build a large database, and I understand that this DB will take a specific amount of internal memory.
I guess my confusion is as follows:
1. Why can’t the database just be written to the internal storage
2. Even if there is some programming limit for the database, folder navigation should allow you to directly access the tracks via the FAT (thus bypassing the database)
I don’t care about the database update. That update gives me advanced sorting functions that simple folder navigation can not. But at least I can access all my music in some sort.
