Let's assume that most of these hangs are individual drive related - has
rockbox gotten as good as it will get in handling drive burps like this? I
have them occasionally (most recently, of the sort where the sound cuts off
but the playing continues), not often enough to really get on my nerves, but
I'm just curious whether the software will continue to improve the error
handling. Or are the disk hangs mostly hardware related/controlled?
