Soon after setting up the SSD and WMC to record on it, however, while watching live TV (MLB Network) I noticed that WMC would sometimes freeze, to the point where no commands were accepted and all we could do was wait for it to unfreeze itself. The display might or might not turn into large, disjointed blocks. I could get the mouse pointer to show, but the WMC controls would not appear and there was nothing to click the mouse on. Once things got sorted out after 30-90 seconds, the playback would rush forward to the current time.
Later in the evening, after this happened several times while we were trying to watch a recording of "Jeopardy," my wife asked me to revert the recording drive to one of the existing HDDs that's running low on space. No problem, I thought -- just this afternoon I had changed it from the G: drive to the new SSD, labeled M:. But tonight when I went to Save the new setting back to the G: drive, WMC gave me the scary notice in this topic's title:
Nothing was being recorded at the time.This change will result in the immediate deletion of some of your recordings.
- What could be causing this message?
- Why would it happen tonight but not this afternoon?
- What can I do about it?
- If I did proceed with changing the recording drive back to G:, will any recordings in fact be lost, and from which drive -- the old one with tons of stuff on it, or the new one with just a couple of shows?
***PLEASE NOTE: The SSD is being used for WMC recording and storage ONLY, not as the OS drive.
