Building Database

On my original sansa I would just turn it on and it would go right to the main menu’s, on my new one when i power it up it takes 4 or 5 seconds while showing a message building database. Is this normal? I just asked because i may have seen that the first time I started my old sansa express but never after that and it’s annoying to see it every time i power up my new one.

when I had mine for a complete day, yes it did.
It’s normal, just checks the files. 4-5 secs won’t kill you

Yep, the ‘building database’ message appears on mine ever since I had it. 

thats a normal feature
