To rip more CDs or downloads, I remove the Passport from the BDP-pi and do the work on my laptop. When I re-attach the Passport to the BDP-pi and power up, it takes about 25 minutes for a complete "update" (I have no idea what that is) and database build. The more files I add, the longer it takes. Up to now, it hasn't choked on any number of files. A small part of the total count is cover art. Most of my music is classical music, where we speak of "movements," not "songs." But I have some pop and jazz, too, where "songs" would be an appropriate term. I can access any music within a few seconds -- as fast as I can poke my fingers on the cell phone screen.
