Calibre hangs now

I used Calibre for months without problems. Now the 0.5.14 version hangs when trying to add new book files and I have to reboot. I tried disabling the PDF metadata plugins, but that didn't work. I tried erasing one troublesome pdf but that didn't work. Calibre just hung on another file.

What can I do? Should i reinstall Calibre?

Thanks.

How many books do you have? The amount of time it takes to add an ebook is proportional to the number of ebooks you have in your library.

I have about 700. But that can't be the answer. In going from 690 to 700, no problems. Now I can't add ANY ebooks. It always hangs and the program won't work. In fact it hangs my entire computer. I can't even close Calibre when it hangs.

What formats are these books you're adding in?

epub, lrf, and rtf. I just reinstalled the program and was able to add the files one by one even though it choked when it tried to read all the six from a directory.

The book adding system has been re-written for 0.6, so when it is released in a week or so, try it.
