You're probably right. This is the only explanation that makes any sense. If it was just 4KB then that should have been more than sufficient for most light editing. No one would ever need 500KB! The worst case scenario is that the user has to wait a second while the file is rewritten.


That's why I rip my own on linux and use stand alone mp3 players that support removable micro sd cards. I just lost my player last month, and in 2 days for $50 I got a new one. Music restored. Keep your walled garden. I like it open. Cheers.
