I'd like to know as well. I'm not sure if I'm having the same problem
because of the drive itself or the fact I have it connected via
firewire. If it doesn't work well with the internal player I use Xine
and I can watch the access light and see that xine is accessing the
drive differently. I presume it's caching/buffering more.
