Default Two Audio Glitches I've Noticed

1. It seems that sometimes the player will chirp between two tracks. It doesn't do this on either of my computers or iPod. I don't know why it happens. Eventually I'll find a pattern (whether it be bitrate, encoder, etc.)

2. Also, if I'm playing music and I go to select another artist/album, using the scroll wheel quickly causes the music to skip. You can scroll one or two artists/albums per second without skipping, but any faster and it breaks up. I didn't notice this before I put the memory card in. I figure it's trying to seek through the memory card for some reason (as if the "profiling" at startup isn't enough). The memory card I'm using is a Transcend 1GB microSD in the included SD adapter. Perhaps the card isn't fast enough, but it works great on my M3 DS Simply (even with Castlevania: Castle of Ruin or whatever).

Read something in the PDF manual about a tone between tracks when one is about to expire. Wouldn't know, none of my music is DRMed.

Mine neither, it's more like a chirp on an mp3 made from a scratched cd or something.

Regarding issue 2), how many songs do you have in internal memory and external memory and are you playing from internal or external memory when this happens?

Thanks!

I had internal memory as full as it could be with about 120MB of video and the remainder music. On the 1GB microSD card I had a 700MB movie and two albums, leaving about 80MB free.

I was playing music from the internal memory.

I was thinking of trying two things:
1) Move more things to the external card. I'm taking a wild guess because I don't know much about hardware, but maybe the Pilot uses the internal memory as "Virtual Memory."
2) Trying a miniSD and/or regular SD. Perhaps it's the transfer speed slowing the unit down.
