If i scan a folder for the BPM's and then play some tracks, when i close Virtual dj the next time i open it virtual dj only remebers the BPM of like 2 out of 20 tracks and i have to keep doing the scan for BPM everytime i load VDJ.

Anyone experienced this before or know what i might be able to do

[MAC] My BPMs do not save in my database.

Go to the /Documents/ folder and Control+Click (right click) on the VirtualDJ folder

Choose the Get Info menu choice

Then in the bottom right corner of the Get Info dialog you need to click on the pad-lock and unlock it (will prompt you for you user password)

Then just above that to the left is the Permissions list. Make sure your user account has Read/Write permissions set.

Just below the Permissions box there is a button with a gear graphic on it - click that and choose the 'apply to all included' items

Once changed, close the box to Apply the changes.

In addition to that...songs that contain (') comma's don't analyze either
