Default Pandora Freezing

If there is already a thread on this, I apologize. I searched the forums but did not find anything on this issue.

I have a PS3 Slim (front-loader), and I have had repeated issues with Pandora freezing. It will work fine for a while, and then 5 to 20 minutes in or so it will suddenly freeze, locking up my PS3.

My only way out is to press the power button, which then beeps, tries to reset the machine, and then shuts down completely. When I restart the machine, it sends an error report to Sony, and then proceeds to check the hard drive for corruption.

I ended up needing to replace the hard drive once due to this, replacing a 320 GB Western Digital unit with a 1TB Toshiba drive a few months ago. I uninstalled Pandora tonight and reinstalled it, to see if it was the installation on my PS3 causing it. Well, it froze again after about 15 minutes of streaming.

Has anyone else encountered this issue before? Is there a known fix? Any help is greatly appreciated.
