It's been mentionned several times before that NTFS support was quirky and unreliable, and switching to ext3 would resolve virtually any filesystem corruption or performance issue.
This being said, part of those problems with NTFS have been fixed in the development tree, as I borrowed files from both newer WDTV firmwares and Asus' routers (which use the same NTFS driver). There just hasn't been any new release of WDLXTV that incorporate these changes yet.
