I recently switched from an IAudio X5 to an Ipod video 5.5Gen. I've noticed that often it'll get into a state where the disk activity goes crazy and it'll take anywhere from a couple up to 20+ reboots to regain control. I thought maybe I had bad hardware.
While the disk activity is going crazy, it is impossible to fast-forward/rewind. Playback will continue, unstoppable.
Any attempt to fastforward/rewind will move the progress indicator, but playback doesn't pause while repositioning and the progress bar will resume like nothing happened when the buttons are released. IE: playback at 50% of the track; rewind to 5%, let go and the bar goes back to 50%.
While this is going on, the disk activity is *insane*. Sometimes after 5-10 minutes, it'll settle down and control can be regained. Last time when I upgraded to the january 3rd release, I couldn't regain control no matter what. After 15 minutes of disk thrashing, I rebooted to apple mode, plugged in a USB cable, and loaded the oldest version on the rockbox site (10/22/2007).
Now, everything is working perfectly.
