It usually happens if the hard drive was being accessed at the time. Shouldn't be anything to worry about, it's done it to us on a number of occasions but nothing is wrong with it. :smileyhappy:

Settle down there. :smileyhappy:

 

I misunderstood then, I thought you meant while shutting it down yourself.

 

If it's doing it by itself, it sounds like it's overheating. You didn't see a yellow light, did you?

No, no yellow light... I played about 2 hours and happened that.

After turning off, the red light remained blinking.

I have it on an open area. It has plenty of space and i bought it on the 28th of september.

If it flashed yellow i didn't saw. But its possible i think... anyways.. i did that thing of restoring system files of the hard drive because some days ago i had the idea of copying 8000+ music files to the hard drive and then deleted them and now i have 20gb of music on it. The system files can become corrupt or something with the use of the hdd...

Yes, it works okay but i think this is a strange problem.
