I read about that when I had mine for a while already, and
honestly, had no idea what that was all about. Never had
it any samples drop on me once. Maybe that is because I
defragmented the drive regularly? (Not even fanatic though.)

Recorded hours of audio from a family reunion last christmas,
and as far as I can tell did not miss one sample. I always
use headphones when I listen to these things afterwards,
missing samples is something I'm quite certain I would notice.

My unit was of course intended for the European market,
maybe they're different? If you want, I can make you
a long test WAV with the unit and encode an mp3
out of it for you to listen to.. (using .rockbox)
Just tell me what I should record for that problem to show
(if it's there..)
