I've always thought the consensus was to clear it if you experience trouble loading certain discs, etc. otherwise, do as you like. Maybe clear it ocasionally. That's what I've done.

I don't think clearing it out actually does anything bad, at least I don't remember reading any posts etc. mentioning that. I clear mine out ocasionally, and for no good reason...

I don't know EXACTLY what it is for, but I think it's for things like loading blu-ray menus/BD-Live stuff/maybe bookmarks/etc. I think I remember there was an issue where trying to play certain discs back-to-back would cause the player not to be able to load the second one. Clearing the storage was needed to fix that, until a firmware update was issued.

There's also a known issue with the BDP-83's loader, they've had a bunch of them go bad and have replaced them. Mine hasn't been replaced yet, but I may have signs of the problem. Once in a while the tray won't open, or the player won't read a disc. It says 'unknown' or something like that. Powering off for a while seems to work.

When you have those freezes does clearing the storage do anything for you? Or does the problem disc load fine after powering off/on? Just curious...
