I have been trying to play music files using the USB input. The only problem I am having is that every now and then, the music pauses( less than a half second) and it almost sounds like a skip on a cd. I know the source files are good. Is there a limit to size of hard drive that can be used? The drive I am using is 200GB IDE drive in an external case. Would this work better with a faster SATA drive? The files I am playing are in folders with the album name and the songs are in the FLAC format. Has anyone had the same issue and if so were you able to find a solution? t. Any other other ideas? Thanks.
