Hi Chuck
I tried it but was affraid by the noise of the player (clic... clic...
clic...). And what u mean by "several" ? And I got a VIA controller,
they're well known for their lack of performances concerning their powering
abilities... so I don't really know if it'll work. I'll give it a try if u
tell me how long u waited until it booted up...

Thank you :-)

*eXus is lookin at his Archos... so beautiful... so amazing... and so...
dead ;-)
