I started experiencing this problem when upgrading my
JB6000 to a 30GB Fujitsu. When playing an MP3, the red
LED will glow and the music stop playing for a while,
counter still running. The led is on for about 30 secs,
and then the MP3 continues where it left off (displaying
the wrong time). While paused, i can access the
Rockbox menu, but not pause, ffwd, stop or any other
disk operation.

This occurs regardless of bit rate, lenght, name, position
or any other common trait I can think of.
One thing that's sure is that it will always happen, and
with intervals of 5-30 mins.

I have had this bug since release 2.0 and tried a lot of
daily builds. The sure thing is that it started with the HD-

Hello, I'm having this same issue with a jukebox studio 20,
60gb Fujitsu hardrive upgrade, archos firmware rom 5.08, and
I am using rockbox version 2.0, my directory has 849 songs,
battery power 74%, the freeze happens randomly, and it may
play 10 songs fine but freeze midway on song 11. My email
address is Please let me know if
there is a definite fix for this as I love the rockbox. I have
also tried the daily builds as well but same problem.

This issue has been fixed or resolved itself as of daily build
CVS-040102. I do not experience the problems first reported
anymore. My observations are done on a JB6000. Daily build
CVS-040102 was the first tested after v2.1, so I don't now
exactly when this was fixed. The issue was still alive on
Rockbox v. 2.1.

Thanks a lot!, now I don't have to tear my hair when the
jukebox suddenly stops! I was going bald but now the future
looks bright.
