The hard drive in the mp3 just spins up and back down when I plug the

Oh and when I ran badblocks, I believe there were some errors, but it
was hard to tell, because there was no output for a while then my
braille terminal was flooded with numbers.

That's *not* encouraging!

What do you think?

Time to pony up for a new MP3 player...

How should this be used? In this case?

player's storage. I would wipe it and try a badblock scan. Maybe the

How and what does a badblock scan do? The mp3 player is hdd based btw.
