seems unlikely. maybe your hd is starting to have read errors... that
would cause a gap as the drive tried to re-read the sector to get a clean
read. it would be more likely to show up on 320K because the buffer has to
be refreshed more often. this is pure speculation though.

shipped batteries, haven't charged them in quite a while.

i noticed your other email speculated on the length of the file being an
issue... i just encoded a one hour wav file to a 320K mp3 (161M output
file) and i am listening to it on the JBR now. it's playing fine so far
but i'm not very far into it. does your problem manifest itself
immediately or does it take a while for it to show up?
