Re: My slug freezes up - Can anyone help? SOLVED
- Chalk another one up to faulty hardware. After exhausting all
possible configuration ideas, I thought that maybe the unit was
overheating. It would explain why, after 15-20 minutes it would
fail, and why it would take another 30 minutes to get it to start up
So, this weekend I wrapped it in a small towel, and then placed it
between two ice packs to keep it cold.
It happily ran the entire day, during which time I was able to format
my 500gb drive, copy over 30+gb of mp3 and avi files, and stream
music to my Audiotron - all with no problems whatsoever.
Today I'm bringing it back to the store for another one. I'll post
another update. Hopefully the next one won't have the same problem :)
