Subject: RE: What's left for 2.0?
From: Gerald Clark (gerald_clark_at_mindspring.com)

Battery output decreases significanty at lower temperatures.
In cold weather, disk spinup could very well fail.

      I have a really off the wall idea about this. For some time I have
    thought that this problem might be temperature related. I know this
    sounds bizarre but it has been consistent ever since I got my Archos FM
    Recorder about three months ago. I live in North Dakota where we get a
    lot of cold weather but since the weather has started to get a little
    more spring like this problem is a lot less common. I always take the
    unit indoors at night and when I first start it up in the car it works
    for a while. If it is cold out it will lock up after 10 - 15 minutes.
    After restarting if I keep it warm, for instance, by putting the unit in
    my shirt pocket under my coat it will not reoccur.

    We're down to only one single flaw that is still considered a
    show-stopper
    for the upcoming 2.0 release, and that is the ATA/disk problems
    sometimes
    referred to as the 'red led death' (and similar).
    
    Some minor adjustments have been made lately that according to some
    people
    have improved the situation.
    
    We need more feedback, more reports, more analyses. Bring your opinions
    and
    your ideas.
    
    The problem that sometimes appears in combination with rewinding or fast
    forwarding, is not the same problem and will not be addressed before the
    2.0
    release since it will require a somewhat larger fix.
