Chita, sorry for taking so long to get back to you... well, I just drove around yesterday (friday) for a long *** time, and it froze when Mapmonkey wasn't even running! Only frodoplayer take 3 and a iguidance 2.0 was running!
Then I had to force a reset, try again... this time ONLY frodoplayer take 3 running. And one thing I noticed is that it seems to freeze exactly when changing to a new song. That's whether I hit next, or one song ends, and then another is about to begin.
So this leads me to believe it could be the hard drive (bad sectors or some crap), or still a slight possibility of that USB powermanagement thing.. I'll try the usb thing later. Or, unlikely, but slightly possible that frodoplayer is causing my troubles.
And yes I do have the remote wonder, but it's not even plugged into any usb ports. Still, you may be right, this did start happening more since I installed the drivers for that thing.
Chita, in case you're still curious, approx specs for my comp are athlon xp 2000+, shuttle mobo, 256 MB ram, seagate 3.5" 80 GB HD, xenarc TS from digitalww, opus 150W... onboard sound and video via shuttle mobo and nforce board.
And of course, the remote wonder.. Next trip (sunday night or monday early morning) I'm going to try ONLY iguidance running... no frodoplayer. If that still craps out, off to strip any ati remote wonder drivers or the usb power management. How did the usb power management thing work out for you chita?
