First, make sure that your Rekordbox software is up to date. Check for any available updates by clicking on the “Help” tab in the menu bar and selecting “Check for Updates.” Updating the software to the latest version can often fix bugs and improve performance.

Next, check your computer’s system requirements to ensure that it meets the minimum specifications for running Rekordbox.

If you are using an external hard drive or USB drive to store your music library, make sure that it is properly connected and recognized by Rekordbox. Go to the “Preferences” menu and check the settings under the “Library” tab to ensure that the correct storage devices are selected. If your music files are stored on a device that is not properly connected, Rekordbox may have trouble loading tracks.

Additionally, check for any corrupt or damaged music files in your library that may be causing issues with loading tracks in Rekordbox. Run a scan of your music files using a third-party software to identify and repair any damaged files. Removing any corrupt files from your library can help improve the performance of Rekordbox.
