Here's another Iriver comment:
When I select a non-buffered track manually my Iriver H140 usually
buffers data for 20 or more seconds. So when I'm usure what to listen
to and change tracks a lot, there's HD access all of the time, much of
How about starting the buffer with a minute worth of music and then
fill it fully
on the next buffering, if I leave the unit running untouched?
IMO this could save energy. As an added bonus it could also insure the
unit against dropping:
After deciding on what to hear I usually put the Iriver back into my
pocket. During this time the risk of accidentally dropping the unit is
highest - and I'd prefer the HD not to spin if this happens...
What do you think?
