 Post subject: Database file too big ?

Hi, I am a satisfied user of AP, but lately I'm getting a database error after a short time.
It says that it cannot write to the database.
When I put my previous backup back it works ok again.

After playing several musicfiles the same error occurs.

The database file called albums.mdb is 1,96 GB big.

I was wondering if it could be that whenever a record is playing and additional data (photo's of the artist) is loaded via the internet, that the program hits a boundary of 2 GB and than gives this error ?

Is there a workaround on this or is it a bug ?

Greetings

When the databasefile is smaller than 1,99 GB the program works flawless.

When playing an audio file, the program searches for additional pictures on the internet and writes them to the database. As soon as it reaches 1,99 GB the error occurs.

Here are some screenpics to show what I mean:

I think I've found a way to work around this problem. Instead of putting the pictures of the artists in the databasefile, I put them in a separate folder and let the program link to that folder.

Now I only have to make a folder for every artist and put the pictures, recordlabel, cover etc in that folder. It's a lot of work but this way I also can control which picture is relevant to that artist in that year, so that no present pictures are shown while the record is old (I like the 60's-music a lot and don't want nowadays-pictures of the artist shown while an old record plays).
