> We have a single disk connected to two disk controllers: The Archos CPU
and the USB-storage chip. It is impossible to have both controllers access
the disk at the same time. Chaos, corrupted disks and possible destroyed
hardware would be the result.

True, but with the ISD300 (recorder) it _is_ possible to pause PC based disk
activity, do something to the disk via the SH1, then resume PC based
activity. Of course, if that 'something' is to delete the file the PC is
accessing, then you're in the shit.

And this does nothing for the fact that leaving the USB connected is not
entirely good for the batteries.
