Subject:Need another Kompakt Player?

Do we need to install another Kompakt player just for ACIDPro6?
I've got one for Sibelius 4, Native Instruments Komplete2, Garritan Personal Orchestra & Jazz Band...

Is there a way to use one of the currently installed players instead?

My C drive is 120 GB and it's almost full od samples. I'm thinking of migrating the samples to an external USB 2 HDD. I use removable HDDs in the D slot so I can't put the samples there.
Any suggestions?

No more room for an internal drive got the two HDDs,d a CD Burner & a DVD Burner. Besides, the largest internal can only be 120GB without going to a raid. I use HDD trays...wait a
you got me thinking I should remove the CD Burner (the DVD does both, anyway) and put another HDD in that slot. Thanks!

If you use Windows XP SP2 you can use larger hard drived. I just added a 250 gig partition to mine.

How many internal Gigabytes will XP SP2 handle?

With third party samples tied to an NI Kompakt player the player has to be installed, registered, and activated with NI before the samples/instruments can be loaded in the regular Kompakt or Kontakt. (and opened at least once) The Sony Kompakt samples/instruments do load in Kontakt(s) 1.5.x and 2.0.x as well as Kompakt 1.0.8 even though the Sony Kompakt is v1.0.9. If you un-install the Sony Kompakt player the library will no longer open in the other ones. I have several sample libraries that are tied to either Kompakt or Kontakt players as well as a few Intakt libraries. I have migrated a few of the lesser used ones to an external drive.

I think XP will recognize any size drive that is recognized by your m'board BIOS but I don't know anyone using anything larger than a 1.2TB raid.
