Latest build (r12617) on both my 5.5g and 60gb 5g.
The disk spins up ALL THE TIME when browsing both the filetree (with dircache on and properly initialized) and the MENUS. Yes, I'm serious. Also worth noting is that quite often, pressing play to return to the wps from the filebrowser or menu results in the hard drive spinning up (not that it should make a difference, but this is using a wps with no graphics).
Turning off the show icons setting makes no difference--since the previous build I used was before JDG's massive menu changes I initially thought the problem was related to reading the icons from the hard drive or something, but apparently not.
It really is insane. Most of the time, just pressing Menu from the wps results in a pause [before it displays] while the hd spins up. If you wait for the drive to spin down and start navigating through any of the menus, real quick you'll hit another *pause* while the hd spins up. You can repeat the procedure.
I can't understand how I could be the only one experiencing this, with two different ipods. In any case, if it's necessary, I suppose I could go back through the archives and try to find out when it started. Oh, and I apologize if this is not the proper category--I gave it my best.
