Both of my JBR units, an FM, and a V2 have done that from time to time, just
a few months after purchasing.
It seems to stop later.
I am not sure, but it might help to use the batteries up before charging
I have not noticed this happening for some time.

Yes, I'm pretty sure it's not the battery. I charged
it and it still makes the same hideous clunking noise
when I tried to boot afterwards. It sounds like the
mechanism in the drive is stuck or something. This is
very frustrating. It's less than a year old.
Can anyone recommend a good 40 or 60 gig replacement
