I have a Samsung YU-1 player and after a few months of putting files and 
erasing files on it, it tends to have a flakey file system.   For example, 
you put a book on it and when listening, it will run into a 'block' of an 
older book that has been erased.

So I reformat it using Windows and it's good for some more usage.

You might try a format under Linux but I don't trust the Mass storage stuff at 
this point.
