From your description, however, it seems clear that you do have a corrupt internal file system. What I'd do is make a backup of the "system" folder, then reformat the internal disk (to FAT32) using your Mac, and put the system folder back. That should fix the problem.
I've got a Windows laptop in addition to the Mac desktop. Using the Properties in Windows shows that 53.9 Megs of disc space are 'in use' even though my programs on the disc total around 12 Megs with 9.7 megs alloted to the System folder of the Cybook.
I did the error check and defrag but nothing seemed to change.
Harry or Dale, could you give me instructions on how to do what you propose on the Windows computer (reformat the cybook internal memory)?
I'm not sure how to format the internal disc on either the Mac or PC.
