Karmic Cycles

Well, I did some looking around on various forums for Rio Karma users, and it looks like the problem I was having isn't an uncommon one... There seem to be two possibilities: either it's a software problem or a hardware problem. I downloaded the firmware upgrade; if it's a software problem, that should take care of it. If it's a hardware problem, well, I have no doubt it will happen again, and the thing is still under warranty. So we'll see. In the meantime, I'm continuing to load music into it, because I'm an incurable optimist. Oh, yeah, it shut down when the battery ran out, and once I plugged it into the AC power source it booted back up and seemed to be fine. I am hearing some tiny clicking noises from the hard drive which I'm not 100% sure I was hearing before, but I think a certain amount of noise is normal. I also discovered that I didn't have to let the battery run down; apparently there's a recessed reset button which can be accessed with a paperclip and which is designed to deal with just such emergencies.

So, stay tuned, I guess. (Ha! Tuned! I kill me!)
