Sharon, welcome back to the fold. I have a 6GB studio. Linus sent me a
patch (I'm not sure this is the correct word) for it to resume after a
pause or a stop. It is simple, it works very well and it installs easily
without any specific knowledge.
I wouldn't buy from this salesman, he sounds like a highwayman to me. Buy a
new unit from Archos and if it is defective, just return it.
