From the new version, on my MacPro Octo, my CPU use less than 0.1% (after load library), and no problems with library, it is all loaded.

Great update for the moment to me,
and I thanks some works on :)

…To come back on your problem,
try to reset all logs (and prefs if still blocked) ;)

Have been giving Simplify Media a try pretty much since it first came out.
It's no wonder I hardly ever launch it anymore. Nice concept, clunky execution;

The latest version (2.5.0.1519) Introduces a new bug on top of the continuation of the old CPU Hog bug that it has had since day 1;

Now when I launch, it pretty much recognizes most of my itunes library (well, it recognized 5800 of 8000 songs), BUT now the new bug is that it continuously cycles with a "Reading library file" message and progress bar 99% of the time it is on, and uses 67% of the CPU on a QUAD Intel iMac; WOW, what a resource hog.

I will give this product One last chance (next update after this one" before I abandon it; At this time I cannot recommend this application to any of my friends, and I am on the verge of advocating against this app. C'Mon guys, after approx 2 years of development, it still acts this way? Good Luck, and try again.

I am going to try to find previous version to downgrade, as this version is a step backwards for me, and wait 1 more time for the 'next' new version.

Crap: My review was actually on version 2.5.0.1810. For some reason I mistakenly wrote the old version number, but my bug report is on my disappointment with version 2.5.0.1810

Simplify Media invariably crashes when trying to initialize my library of around 25.000 titles. So far, it is a fruitless exercise for me ...

Beware. The latest version (2.5.0.159) is no longer usable with OS X 10.4 (Tiger). This should be changed in the info on MacUpdate.
