Player won't boot up if flash disk loaded with more than a half GB
I bought my GoGear Ariaz 8GB in Holland at the end of 2010. It has always been working extremely fine, a great product.
Yet I have been experiencing for a month a weird behavior: when I load it with data (flac and ape files) beyond the half giga, it is not booting up. It shows the Philips logo, then tries to show the Gogear's animated one but shuts down at once.
First I thought this was caused by a corrupted file, or a file actually different from its extension (like a .flac/.ape renamed video), thus I tried a variety of files, but I had always the same response. I then noticed that with one file, or two small ones (250+250 MB) it worked fine as always.
I'm working on Linux, thus I did not try yet to upgrade the firmware (that's not cool, anyway); I would use a friend's PC so I would like to be sure before bothering.
My idea is that probably some clusters are broken, and if I don't get to use them (if I don't load the flash disk enough to use them) the problem doesn't show up.
I would love to read that I'm so wrong and that a firmware upgrade would restore the player!
Waiting for a respone, I thank you in advance,
