Itunes 4.0.1 slowing down - Mac Applications & Software

Hi all! I am on OS X.2.6, iMac Combo 700mhz, use iTunes 4.0.1.

    Default Itunes 4.0.1 slowing down

    Hi all!

    I am on OS X.2.6, iMac Combo 700mhz, use iTunes 4.0.1.
    My HD has 4 partitions, the one with OS X has iTunes on it, of course,
    the iTunes library is on the Data partition (the largest of the 4).
    I have 293 .mp3s into the iTunes library, 1.7GB in total.

    For the last 3 weeks, everytime I want to switch from one song to
    another, the music starts immediately, but there's the little colored
    wheels turning for 10/15 secs, and until it has disappeared, I don't get
    the correct song infos on the display.

    I have cancelled all the preferences (2 files), converted all the tags
    ID3 to v2.4, restored Unicode, but there's no improvement.

    Any idea/suggestion?

    You could delete your whole iTunes library and then re-import it from
    the actual files. I've done this twice and it seems to make it
    faster....

    To do this, you select all the songs in your iTunes library browser and
    delete them (make sure iTunes doesn't put them in the trash). With your
    iTunes library now empty, add all of your songs back in (from the "File

    this is weird: in order to follow your advice, I have exported all my
    playlists, to eventually reimport them and have them already ready.
    After having done that, the slowing-down problem seems to have
    disappeared!

    I will keep my fingers crossed, and will eventually write again!

    ciao,
