If it was just once it'd be fine, but it's doing it almost every day now. And even the clean up option from recovery doesn't always help, it'll often take five times to complete the index rebuild. If I'm just listening to one audio book, which usually take more than a dozen hours to finish it'll be just fine but switching albums is a perilous task. Starting to play a new album is often the time the X-Fi blanks and I have to start doing the recovery grind.

Sounds like a hardware failure to me, but I'm asking just in case it happened to anyone, how did you fix this? I'm not under warranty, bought it from eBay used.

I've had that problem frequently. The only solution that worked for me:
1) go in recovery mode choose Format all
2) in recovery mode choose Clean up
3) in recovery mode choose Reboot
4) reload the firmware using your computer
