mhhh - on the homepage i can just find special adapter cables rated 49.00 €+
e.g. for archos multimedia which contains electronics - so the price is
somewhat justifiable.

They sell DUMB A-to-A cables for $30 ??? Could you send a link? Can`t
believe that.

That is not vague - that is nonsense, IMHO !

The Jukebox MP3 Recorders FAQ at
http://www.archos.com/lang=en/support/tech_jbrec_faq.html

claims:

"3. Can I just use a generic USB cable to connect my Jukebox to my computer?
The Jukebox USB cable is manufacture specific with the drivers. If you need
additional cables, you can purchase directly from Archos."

Hey archos, you've gotta be kidding !?
