Provide as much detail of the issue here: 


Rekordbox is a fresh install on a brandnew personal computer (6core AMD 3.3 ghz, 4gb ram 1600mhz, 128 GB SSD) everything works perfectly, except rekordbox and its way of importing folders/playlists.


All my files have been scanned by mp3val and repaired if needed. When I import a single file it works well. As soon as i import a folder (with subfolders, created by rekordbox on my usb) It starts preparing and then crashes. After doing this rekordbox keeps on crashing on start-up.


My laptop crashed and died. I lost everything, harddrive was fryed. So my collection, that i export to my usb with rekordbox for use with cdj2000, is the only mp3 left. So I copied the 'contents'  folder from my usb stick to  C:/users/music/contents and imported 'contents'. I can open rekordbox again, if i delete the library file that rekordbox uses.


I've also tried to load an Itunes playlist with all my music in it. And it prepares, and then crashes and acts the same way after I tried to import the whole folder as described before.


**p.s. Extra question: I have tons of loops, hotcues and more on my usb stick, wich i can't import within rekordbox It doesn't import the usb collection to my (empty) database. So i can't update with the cues from my usb

some help would be appreciated. I have no idea why it's not working. **
