Jean, thanks for this. I'll check it out. Now how hard would it have been
for Archos' technical 'support' to tell me this I wonder?

I defragged my Jukebox recently, so I know what you mean about the power
drain. In addition it got _very_ hot. No harm done though, and it all seems
to be working fine.

I still think it would be nice if the Jukebox charged itself from the USB
port while it was switched off. That would mean that I didn't have to carry
a charger around with me, as everywhere you go there are computers with USB
ports.
