So I've had my kindle about a week now, really enjoy it so far.  I noticed over the last couple days a few things...

-Random Restarts
-Spontaneous screen refreshing

Getting a little scare i decided to poke around ( i work in QA, thats what i do LOL)  anyway... started looking at the files and directories in the system directory and noticed a directory with what i figured were search indexes to help with searching through all your content.  The files were relatively small and it appears there is one for each book. 

I realized that these must be created when the kindle sleeps or in the background while reading, I had also slapped close to a hundred books in to the k2 shortly before i noticed the problems above.

So i wiped the kindle, and started replacing them in small groups...  this looks like it has worked and i dont see the problem any more but it has only geen a couple hours...

can any one add any info to this?  appreciate any additional help or confirmation on my problem  thanks

What Verena said.  You are right, though, when members have added a lot of books in a short time, the indexing has caused problems similar to what you've noticed.  Eventually, the Kindle catches up.  Adding in batches as you're doing also helps.

I had more problems like you've described at the beginning when I added a whole bunch of books.  Now that they're coming in slowly, I seldom have a hangup.
