New HD MK2004GAL verfified and tested for bad sectors w/ chk dsk. Â I should format the disk again and verify this, though. Â The player had a bad HD in it but looked like it was hardly used (the remote was still in the wrapper), not a scratch on the body. Â I got the previous owner to kick in $100 for a new HD, which I bot along with a replacement ipod 2g batt. Â
I have used this H120 pretty extensively. Â 8 hours at Fuji Rock, 5 hours at Metamorphose Festy...a few hours doing in-stores and a friend's jazz performance. Â No problems, I have listened to all those recording and not noticed a glitch. Â Taped about 3.5 hours yesterday and I noticed this.
I have another H120 (used too but the HD verified ok with chk dsk)...I have only used it for 8 hours total...no problems. Â I really hope I can resolve this.
These are the settings I have for the Disk:
Disk Spindown: 5s
Disk Poweroff: No
Directory cache: No
Should I be setting things up differently in the general settings?
The player was in a bag on the ground. Also, it was running out of a mod Edirol UA-5, not a mod SBM. Sorry.
