For some reason this particular mp3 file is confusing my usb-mp3-player to no end. The symptoms are, first, when the show ends there are several minutes of no sound before the next podcast starts. And, second, if I try to skip past this CarTalk podcast file, the mp3 player locks up , won’t respond to button presses, and I have to remove the battery to get it working again. The other loaded podcast files play fine, 7 or 8 of them, have no problems of blank audio segments at the end, and I can skip through them frontwards and backwards w/out difficulty.
I’m not 100% certain it is the Car Talk mp3 file, it could be a problem with the mp3 player, or may be the file just go corrupted during the download, but wondering for debugging purposes if anyone else is experiencing this?
The mp3 player I use is branded “Polaroid” and is the kind where the mp3 player and its buttons are part of a usb memory stick.
