I've run into the same problem on occasion, and I have 256 MB RAM! There are a bunch of possible reasons here. First, programs running in the background may be eating a lot of your RAM. Close any virus scanners, task schedulers, anything in your tray. Then, go to:


Start>Run and type "msconfig." This opens a little program shows you everything that loads with windows. Go to the startup tab and uncheck most of the boxes there. Be careful -- trial and error --. If your computer starts malfunctioning you might need to go back and re-check some of those boxes.


Also, AnalogX.com has a free program called Max Mem that purges your RAM. I know some DAWers who open this program, flush their RAM, and then close the program every so often while they work, and report good results. But I also think Cakewalk has a little bug in loading soundfonts. How big are the banks you are trying to load? With 64MB installed, you should be able to open soundfonts up to 32MB.


Hope something in here might help,

The limits on soundfont size are specific to Cakewalk. If you have your "static caching" limit in the Soundfont control panel set too low, Cakewalk will not "attach" the soundfont either. In other words, the size restriction should not have anything to do with Cakewalk, only with the SB settings in Windows.


Hope that helps.
