The iPod currently has a bug that causes its internal hard drive to spin for the entire duration of large (over 22 MB) audio files. This puts excessive wear on the drive and significantly decreases battery life.

Normally, the hard drive should only spin for about 15 seconds every 20 minutes. Forget about the gap between tracks...this bug seems far more urgent. Apple please fix it!
