dude return your mpc it's faulty. it should not take that long under any circumstances.

I can load 180MB in less than 10 minutes. Saving takes about the same.

that said, this is an estimate off the top of my head.

I had similar issues when I first bought my 5000 second hand.

But.. I reset the system by holding ERASE on startup, which seemed to quicken loading slightky

Also, the only time I get a weird (loading view) sign and delay now is when I try and load my main beats folder, which is probably just too full. Other folders and files load fine. I just need to start putting things into smaller folders.
