I've had this problem too (AJB6000 also). I don't think it has anything
to do with the battery level--it occurs when my player is plugged in and
the battery is fully charged. I've narrowed the problem down to the
disk spin down: the problem goes away if I back out the changes made to
drivers/ata.c on 8/26-8/27 (i.e., to version 1.37). It also goes away
if I increase the spin down time from 2s to 20s. I haven't fiddled with
the settings to find out exactly when it goes bad, though.
