Thanks for that suggestion, Alan.
I used a cheap hub that I had stashed away. At the begining that seemed to solve the problem. But after a while, some clicks and pops became audible.
Disconnected it all for a while, and when I reconnected, the problem was back again with this message on mpd.log:
Aug 01 05:57 : output: "USB" [alsa] failed to play: No such device
Aug 01 05:57 : output: closed plugin=alsa name="USB"
This time, there's no EMI message in dmesg.
Still have to try copying files from one usb flash to another.
