Based on the descriptions of the player's function that I've found
on-line, while playing, it supposedly spins up the disk, copies
several megabytes of data to it's ram as a buffer, and then spins down
the disk. In other words, the ram is there as a buffer and not much
else. Assuming the software executes in place on the flash (without
needing to be copied to ram) that would make 0x10000000 likely the
beginning of ram and 0x30c0000 the beginning of flash. Of course, I
could be all wrong.
