Q: When I start my UMP the harddrive LED remains on for approx 5 or more minutes. After this is starts normally.
A: Every now and again the harddrive of the device needs to be forcefully checked for consistency. This process should NOT be aborted and
  should never happen twice in a row. Should this be the case, consider formatting the Media partition.
