I don't think they use any other file system, that would make it very tricky
to just mount it as an external hard drive under Windows which I bet people
still do.

Anyone with an FM recorder could just rip it apart and check if it isn't a
ISD300 or something in there. There just isn't enough brave FM owners yet!
;-) Anyone with an FM and Linux could tell 100% for sure.

Eh, all of us (more or less at least) here already have our Players and
Recorders. Why would we stop making this software just because Archos would
stop selling them?

The FM clearly looks similar to a Multimedia which seems to be Archos "new
look".
