I currently have the m240 1GB player, but I want to get the m250 2GB player. I have some questions before I buy though. I have been hearing/reading about people having trouble with freezing up on the players. My m240 has firmware 3.x, and so far I have had no problems. Is the freezing problem only with firmware 4.x? If I happen to get one with 4.x, what can I do to prevent it from freezing up on me. I don’t want to be stuck with a dud.
Also, how long is the startup time on the m250? My m240 boots up instantaneously in under 5 seconds. Is it any different in the m250? Is skipping between tracks instantaneous too or is there any slight pause?
