@Brady > A whole host of new videos will be produced with the 1.6 release; we've decided to hold off on creating anything now as the pending update will make the old ones a bit useless.
The best thing you can do is play and practice. The settings you should change are fairly minimal; I recommend adding the extra categories for display and sort, but apart from that, you don't need to tinker too much.
The memory cues / hot cues are simply there for demo purpose, you don't need to save the same cue to both.
As for crashing with music imports, I would suggest you check your MP3s and delete the database. If you've followed all the steps and are still having problems with it, copy/paste the bottom bit from that thread and fill it with your info and I'll see how we can help.
