Use your jukebox in DOS(so you don't have to install the windows
drivers)

I have found a way to connect my archos jukebox (AJR10 with HITACHI
Harddisk) to the computer without having to install the windows
drivers. It is based on the program DUSE from pocketech (download it
here: http://www.pocketec.net/downloads/duse_4_2.zip). All you have
to do is format a bootable floppy disk with DOS (under Windows 95
with FAT32 support or higher) and install the USB driver as explained
in the manual that comes with it (it worked for me with the following
line in config.sys : device=a:\duse\duse.exe nocd). Connect your
jukebox to the computer with the USB-cable and put it on. Then boot
your computer with this bootdisk. The jukebox is recognized and
connected as an extra harddrive. You can no move files to and from
the jukebox with the well known DOS commands (or other DOS file
management programs)

This way you can use your jukebox as an portable harddisk and connect
it to every computer which has USB and a floppy drive without having
to install the drivers (for example to exchange large files or
because your computer runs with windows 95 without USB support (like
mine at work)).
