but in the meantime I suppose you can use your player's hard

Hi. Just wondering what is the point of this plugin exactly, as in why would
someone want to do this sum thing to all there files. and secondly, i'm no
expert on hard discs, but it doesn't sound like a really good idea hard
resetting your player especially when the disc is spinning round, at the
very least, couldn't that shorten your drives life, and at the worst
actually damage your hard disc? i mean i no a hard reset is some times
unavoidable, but i really hate doing them especially when the drive is spun
up, as you can actually here them making a kind of pinging noise, i don't no
how to describe it when the power just suddenly goes from them, its not the
normal gentle click sound as the drive closes down.
