It is freezing a lot, this last time while playing. The other times, she
engaged the hold switch, and turned it off again, to pause the player. It
needed resets each time. The idle power off is set to one minute as well, if
that has anything to do with it. Mp3 audiobooks were being played on it when
it froze. Does anyone know why this is happening? Also, how are the EQ
settings able to be modified to be more precise?
