So why does Music bee crash sometimes? somebody explain why that happens? This is not something you can replicate because its quite random and beyond your control.
Its not a one man project. It was shared with the public in order to improve it. He couldnt have done that alone. People like me ought to be highly valued for the insights they provide. If it takes so much effort to do something so simple then maybe the software needs to be changed? I have already discovered one bug which i have posted about where there are missing tracks. Perhaps there are more we dont know about.

Music Bee is fantastic software, probably the best of its kind. And it is completely free. Don't complain about flaws that only you find. Have the humility to learn how to use it by reading the wiki and posting sensible questions on the forum, where you will find plenty of friendly people willing to help you.

Roby, could you please clarify what you mean by "activate Safely Remove from the control panel, i.e. disable the cache". is this different from simply ejecting the device? i am googling it right now but i can't find it

Panel Control > Hardware and Sound >System Properties
Clic on External USB Device > Property > Criteria
Set on Quick Removal.
So in case of a crash I would not lose any data.
Again. Check the cable, sometimes they fail and can cause the HD to crash.

A word of advice, activate Safely Remove from the control panel, i.e. disable the cache. MB is very robust, I use it on an external USB 3 HD and have never had any problems.
Also check that the HD has no problems, e.g. with Crystal Disk Info.

Read the wiki, maybe you will find the answer:

I know SSD don't need defragmentation. The advice is for the mechanical HD where the MB library is contained

[The portable installation is on a M2 SSD while the music library is on a standard 7200rpm 8TB harddisk (internal).]

One more thing. Check that the HD and also the SSD have at least 10% free space (more is better) otherwise the performance will drop. For the other settings don't worry. If you use W10 or W11 the operating system is able to handle an SSD for the best. Make sure the library file is defragmented.

Try clicking on the 3 dots on the right of the "Artist" field and check that the values are consistent. Sometimes happens...

It doesn't work for me either. Ver. 3.4.76250 P and "ShowArtist Picture" selected. The "Paste Artwork" menu item cannot be selected (it is light gray).
