I'm running 2 DN-S3700's in Midi mode and a Dell Inspiron 6000 with 2gb ram and 1.7ghz Centrino. All files on an external USB.
Same setup as always, now with a stutter.

(specs of my laptop are probably pretty close to yours)
its running 5.2.1 right now, no issues, so I too would be interested if 6.07 kills it or not..
Both my Rackmount and Desktop are not showing any increased CPU usage (but night & day difference between those and my 4 year old laptop)..

Message: This is most likely due to performance issues with your computer.
NOTE: 100% CPU usage while loading a song is normal on a single core processor. It will not cause any problems on a correctly configured computer with no performance issues.
Common causes are:
* Performance settings in VirtualDJ set too high for your computer to handle. Try going to CONFIG -> Performances and move the performance slider all the way to the left.
* Computer that is not powerful enough or does not have sufficient memory (RAM) - The recommended requirements can be found on the following page (Ideally your computer should exceed these): http://www.virtualdj.com/products/virtualdj/index.html - You only have 512Mb RAM which is not very much. We would recommend upgrading to 1Gb or preferably more.
* Overheating - Check that the cooling fans are still operational and they are not being blocked. Most computers will slow down the CPU when it starts to overheat, reducing performance considerably.
* ASIO buffer set too low - If you are using an ASIO sound card, please check that OPTIONS -> Performances -> Latency is set to Auto and try increasing the ASIO buffer size under CONFIG -> Sound Setup -> ASIO Config (You will need to restart VirtualDJ between each change for it to take effect.) Repeat until you find the optimal setting for your computer.
* Wireless networking (Try turning this off or disabling it.)
* Viruses and spyware present on your system - Please ensure that your anti-virus software is fully up-to-date and perform a full scan of your system. If viruses are found, then after removing them reboot your computer and perform another full scan. Repeat until no further viruses are found.
* Unnecessary software running in the background. Manufacturers often install unnecessary 'bloatware' applications on computers that can cause performance issues. The following can help identify and remove some of this software: http://www.pcdecrapifier.com
* Laptop optimised for battery life or power saving rather than performance - Go to the Windows Control Panel -> Power Settings and make sure that your computer is set for maximum performance.
* The skin (User interface) has been resized or maximised. On some systems, this can cause increased CPU usage depending on the capabilities of the graphics card.
The DPC Latency checker can be used to check for any performance issues on your computer: http://www.thesycon.de/deu/latency_check.shtml

performance (with just audio files), is pretty much on par with my Cue LE 5.2.1
CPU usage might be a tad higher, but I didnt get any dropouts, even when loading in an unscanned song..
do you have "Safemode" engaged?
