Track doesn't play from the beginning!

Hi there..

I recently switched from FS 1 to Serato as i heard it was way more stable..

I ran v 1.6 which came with the hardware for a while..It was running smoothly..But i quickly updated to 1.7 which i got from your website cause i liked the new options..

But eversince i installed it, wether using vinyl or CD i keep getting this same exact problem:

The track doesn't play from the beginning whenever i map it and even if i put the needle back at the very beggining of the record or skip back on CDs it still starts from a position somewhere right in the midlle of the track.

Please help!

There's a new option in Serato to "play from first cue point." Uncheck that in the setup screen.

If you ever need to jump to the beginning of a track, you can also use the temp cue—which will jump you to the beginning of a track.

Also, make sure your in Absolute mode, not Relative. No needle dropping in Relative mode.

And also check "play from start" option from the setup menu. This will ensure the song loads to the beginning when you drag a new song to the virtual players.
