The flag you mean could be the modification date of the filesystem.
Placing an extra flag does not help. A copy of mp3 files with an other
program does not honor your flag but the filesystem stamps do. A
registry of media cards and modification dates could solve this. If
there is an id on the filesystem (like the uuid from an ext3) use this.
Otherwise the freerunner could create one and write it on the media. If
the freerunner then would check the id and the timestamp asking the user
to do some actions on change that would be heaven :)

my 2 cents
