It could possibly be the reason. Try and see if you have 2 types of tags embedded in your mp3 files. If so I recommend you get rid of the 3.2 and just keep 3.1. Also if you can remove all the album art from your files. You can do this all in one sweep. So you place all your music files from your rocoo into mp3 tag directory. Then highlight all those files and then right click on the album art cover on the bottom left side of the mp3 tag program (select remove cover and then save). This should remove all album art in one sweep. Just make sure you save or it will undo it all.
My 32GB SD card full of FLAC files takes less than 10 seconds to load on each start up (more like 5 secs) so I think something isn't right in your tags. But when you take the SD card out and put it back in it will take a bit longer to load that initial time. Maybe 30 seconds or so is about right and then every other restart should be 5 secs. Good luck and I hope this works for you. Seems 3.2 tags don't play real nice on this player so maybe opt for 3.1 tags for all your mp3 files. But first see if you have mixed tags (3.1 and 3.2) and clear the unnecessary clutter which may just solve the issues regardless of the tags you have.

Removed the tags then hit undo with the settings only allowed to write the v3.1 tags back; worked like a champ! It plays mp3 files regardless of the tag version but is the reason it takes so long to initialize on start up due to the v3.2 tags present? Takes about 30-40 sec (I've never timed it) but I wouldn't expect it to take even that long.
